It is formed of three elements; the Cottage which accommodates guests and can be ‘shut off’ when not required, the timber Link which houses the main entrance, utility and kitchen, and the Steading which has the master suite and living areas. Frameless glass elements are employed to visually separate the three buildings, whilst allowing them to physically interact.

 The project is sensitive to its origins and context, the traditional vernacular of the Cottage and Steading echo the footprint, materiality and massing of the original buildings which were on the site, whilst the contemporary timber clad Link is agricultural in form and deliberately subservient to the adjacent buildings. The Steading is sunk partially in the ground, cutting into the land behind as it rises so that it appears to sit in the landscape that surrounds it. Visit Torispardon website
