A BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED HOME WITHIN THE SHELL OF ITS PREVIOUS LIFE
Like A Phoenix Reborn From Its Ashes
Witness a story of time told through the architectural design of this home built from the ruins of an 18th-century farmhouse in Scotland. Preserving the outer walls of the old farmhouse, a futuristic-designed home was built within.
The interior featured a free-form design, with a tube-like hallway separating the main living space from the more private quarters, and curvy walls being the main recurring theme. Wide windows and skylights allow for natural light to illuminate the inside of the home. From within, you can admire the wide open grassland and the passing cattle.
We have preserved the ruin walls and reinstituted the pitched roof that would have been there originally, providing an external coherence. However, the matt black rubber exterior and soft curves of the interior are a more counterpoint preservation, accentuating this palimpsest nature of occupation on the site, and pleasures of living within layers of history.
