Glenboig Cottage

Fintry, Stirlingshire

Studio KAP

The new dwelling was to allow level access around the entire building, part of the house was a small flat for the parents of the client. Studio Kap were the Architect and the house was of really clever and sympathetic design. Robert Chalmers the contractor was great to deal with and was a good problem solver.

Comments by Studio Kap "An extended family dwelling combining two households under one roof. We develop the simple theme of the traditional long-house in contemporary form. The general orientation and massing of the building respond to the layering of the landscape, rising to culminate in the craggy escarpments of the Campsie Fells, while its sharply cut horizontal lines play against the softer undulating foreground of the surrounding farmland."

This project received Saltire Society Commendation.
