The Challenge: To convert and extend a derelict church building on the shores of Loch Torridon
Our Corrie project started as a site-finding mission. It ended in this breath-taking property that combines the old and new in an outstanding location on the shore of Loch Torridon.
It was important to everyone that the remains of the former church formed the core of the project and the heart of the home. We reinvented the original building's open volume and diagonal roof structure to house the main living spaces. The facade has been "cut" to open the view from the inside to the south across the loch.
On approach, the new contemporary black, zinc-clad extension, home to four spacious bedrooms, contrasts the stonework yet blends effortlessly with the hills in the distance. The master bedroom has outstanding views through a structure-free corner window and a sheltered balcony to the outside.
We worked with swimming pool consultants to design and build a pool with a spectacular view in a semi-basement structure, screened by a massive stone wall that wraps around the whole building and disappears into the landscape.
To improve access and facilitate the build process, we also needed to improve an existing road bridge.
Project Location: Letterfearn
The Challenge: To refurbish and extend a property on the shores of Loch Duich.
We were struck by the extraordinary location of the property, on the edge of Loch Duich, enjoying spectacular views of the Five Sisters of Kintail mountains and Eilean Donan Castle across the water.
The highlight of this property is the fantastic view through the structural glass gable end wall.
