A house comprised of a timber and glass box, which is cantilevered above the landscape, and sited on a stone wall which runs both inside and outside of the house. A simple materials palette helps the building blend into the landscape, while large expanses of South-facing glass allow the house to be central-heating free.
A ruined outbuilding on the site will also be converted to a sauna building, offering fantastic views of Bennachie.
