Cupar Muir, Fife

A two phase project, built on brownfield sites, the first phase consisted of ten large four and five bedroom houses, with the layout kept deliberately distinct from the more closely knit, community-orientated 40 house development of the second phase.

We created seven bespoke house types using a deliberately restrained palette of materials, combining a traditional rural vernacular with a more contemporary way of living. Elements of each house are played against each other: the large solid timber garage doors bring a warmth to the naturally slated roof whilst leaded dormer windows and prominent chimney stacks puncture the roof line. The resultant development is distinctive and unique, deeply rooted in its surrounding landscape that carried a strong market appeal.
