The Client had a bold vision for a new eco-house in open countryside between Inverness and Nairn with a desire to take advantages of some spectacular views. Threesixty embraced this opportunity and worked closely with them to develop their concept into a bold but sophisticated home.
The C-shaped form is oriented to create a sheltered south-facing courtyard garden. To the north the rolling countryside drops away providing the main living spaces with panoramic views. Fenestration has been carefully located to frame and capture these views. An over-sailing roof extends the living spaces outside and provides protection from glare and overheating.
Projecting from the simple roof form is the ‘star room’ – a unique glass cylinder providing the Client with an intimate and private spot to enjoy the panoramic views and night sky.
