Summary

This comprehensive redevelopment and extension of a remote former croft and post office on Loch Torridon posed challenges both in construction resourcing and design detailing to address the often severe weather conditions of the north-west highland cost.

The brief for the project, located in the hamlet of Inveralligin on the north shore of Loch Torridon was to re-plan the former cottage and garage/store to provide a new house and separate letting unit; maximise the fine views to the south-west across the loch; and to create a contemporary interior.

The design response was to create a minimally detailed highly glazed extension to the front of the cottage building, open up the ground floor plan to form a large living/dining/kitchen space with smaller study off; re-form the former garage and re-plan the original bothy to create a self contained two bedroom open letting unit with a living area also highly glazed to the loch-side.
