Denizen Works completes Tiree house and holiday home

  • Comment

Emerging practice Denizen Works, has completed this home and guest house scheme in Tiree - the most westerly island of the Inner Hebrides

The 170m² project combines a ‘traditional Hebridean black house of painted stone with agricultural steadings clad in corrugated sheeting’.

Murray Kerr, who founded the 2012 AJ Small Project Prize-shortlisted practice in December 2010 (see new practices: #63 Denizen Works), said the scheme was ‘conceived as a living house, for the clients to use throughout the year, a guest house; containing three bedrooms and associated accommodation; and a utility [block]; containing much needed welly storage and space for the necessary effects required for island life.’
