This storey and a half new build house is situated on the site of an original farm ‘croft’ overlooking Glenluce Viaduct and Luce Bay beyond. The shallow pitch of the roof and large overhangs provide a Scandinavian feel, while offering protection to the eaves below.
With a gradual slope into the site, the house is approached from the rear, with the frontage to the south west. The materials and colour palette were kept to a minimum, with a slate roof, white rendered walls and dark grey windows and doors (to match roof), allowing for a crisp, sharp finish.
The entrance hall houses a double height space with staircase leading to an upper floor living room and balcony, with unique views over Glenluce Viaduct. The ground floor houses an open plan living, dining, kitchen area with large glazed areas, taking advantage of any passive solar gain. The roof construction includes exposed glue-laminated timber ridge beams, which allow for vaulted ceilings throughout and a glazed front gable.
