The basis of the design was to create a comfortable, relaxing and practical arrangement to the ground and first floor of the existing cottage. This included adding a dormer to the rear of the property to give adequate height for an additional shower room on the first floor.
Due to the property’s rural location and limited space, a functional, multi-purpose space was required and it was decided to extend to the front elevation, creating a spacious, entrance vestibule/drying room. The room was designed to meet the needs of guests who come to enjoy the fishing, stalking and hill walking on the estate, enhancing and improving their experience with practical and sensible solutions.
The design and materials of the extension contrast with the existing stone walls and Scottish slate roof. However, the use of the estate colours marry the two together.
