[First look + plans + project data] Brighton-based ABIR Architects has landed planning permission for this private house on the Island of Raasay
The timber-clad structure retains the stone walls of an early nineteenth century farm worker’s home on the site.
The L-shaped building also features a new external stone wall and is designed to provide external shelter from the island’s prevailing winds.
ABIR’s design includes an open plan family living, dining and contemplation area and a sedum green rood.
The Island of Raasay is located between the Scottish mainland to the east and the Isle of Skye to the west.
