Set in a mature wooded sloping site between two traditional Victorian villas, this new build dwelling is a contemporary reinterpretation of traditional Scottish architecture.
It is sculptural, geometric and crisp, but also highly contextual respecting the integrity of the dwellings on either side.
Making the most of the wonderful Scottish light was a design priority.
The main open plan living space is light, airy and expansive, orientated to allow light to floor the space from morning to evening creating a very special family home.
This bold, dynamic building was the winning entry in a national design ideas competition, for a new Beach Pavilion on Ardrossan seafront.
The competition was run by RIAS Consultancy on behalf of Irvine Bay Regeneration Company.
As well as providing outdoor seating, a cafe and public toilet facilities, the pavilion will provide a new focal point for this majestic sweeping bay.
Dynamic, practical, and distinctively clad in zinc, the building reaches out towards the sea to capture and frame the wonderful sea views.
Located within an established residential setting in Alloway, planning restrictions limited this new build house to one and a half storeys but a spacious, five bedroom, high specification, 350m2 family house has nevertheless been designed with free flowing, linked living spaces all with access to the garden.
The house has extensive roof glazing, a first floor gallery with contemporary glazed balustrade and exploits pv energy sources.
Modelled on an architecture studio, the NuVu Innovation School at Kelvinside Academy champions real-world challenges and collaborative problem solving. The three storey stone and glass extension, to a Grade One listed building creatively provides NuVu with flexible workshop, design and performing arts studios. A forward thinking project, it was designed to meet the aims of Circular Construction, utilising renewable materials and working with an aim of reducing waste and enabling future recycling of the constructed elements.
A traditional sunroom extension which provides additional sitting and dining space, and from its elevated position takes full advantage of the stunning views across West Kilbride Golf course to Arran.
This large high specification private dwelling enjoys a sensitive rural location on the edge of West Kilbride Golf Course embracing the stunning views across the Firth of Clyde to Arran. The house has a non- traditional layout with the bedrooms located downstairs, all with direct access to the garden. Upstairs in the open plan vaulted living area, floor to ceiling glazing opens onto a colonnaded deck running the full length of the south west elevation, providing privacy, weather protection and solar shading whilst still capturing the wonderful views. The palette of materials uses crisp rendered white walls, slate and lead roofs, dark grey windows and doors, and is appropriately restrained yet contemporary.
