Our clients came to us with a fantastic elevated site for a new house, near Bennachie in the Aberdeenshire countryside.

  • Project Name
    Upper Parkbrae
  • Location
    Oyne, Aberdeenshire
  • Year Completed
  • Key Materials
    Siberian Larch, Polished Concrete, Smoked Clay Italian Bricks and Birch Ply

Our design is 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.
