Sandbraes

Isle of Arran

This bespoke project was designed specifically for our client on the Isle of Arran. We worked closely with the client and planning authority to achieve an exciting and contemporary family home which is sympathetic to its environment and the local vernacular. The massing of 1.5 storeys is typical of traditional rural dwellings on the island and allows the design to be situated on this site without comprising the impressive views over the bay.

The site sits on an elevated position overlooking Whiting Bay and the design seeks to maximise the panoramic views over the bay. The large south facing windows that frame these views add contemporary features to this rural Scottish influenced design and meet the client’s expectation of the importance of internal spaces feeling open and bright whilst maintaining a domestic scale. This project has successfully achieved the client’s vision for their family home and is due to start on site next year.
