New Build House, Mayar Bhan

Set in a mature wooded sloping site between two traditional Victorian villas, this modern 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 flood the space from morning to evening creating a very special family home.

New Build Contemporary House Portencross

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.

think tank, kelvinside Academy

The old school library located within a Grade 1 listed building has been transformed into an innovative Thinking Space, inspired by organisations at the forefront of the tech sector such as Google. The space hosts computers and iPad stations, where pupils are encouraged to make use of digital devices to access online content platforms.

An experimental Think Tank teaching room within the Thinking Space has tables and walls with writable surfaces, encouraging pupils to get creative with their work, taking pictures on their iPads or electronic devices rather than recording lessons in jotters.

New Build Contemporary House Alloway

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.

Kit House, Lochwinnoch

This Model D kit house uses standard components and was adapted to meet our clients brief for a modern, highly insulated house with renewable energy sources and accommodation that would support an outdoor lifestyle. The simple form, use of metal roofing and timber cladding, glazed porch and large

boot room are appropriate to its sensitive and rural location.
The timber screening allows weather protection to the decks that runs the full length of the house, bedrooms make efficient use of the attic space and large glazed openings give direct access outside, allowing views across the valley.
