Reiach and Hall completes Rosslyn Chapel bungalow

[First look + plans] Reiach and Hall Architects has completed its radical overhaul of a 1960s Scottish bungalow next to the Rosslyn Chapel

The building at Rosilin, Chapel Loan in the Esk Valley, near Edinburgh, and is the last house passed before reaching the chapel which featured in Dan Brown’s blockbuster novel The Da Vinci Code (AJ 08.06.06).

The ‘renewed’ bungalow was ‘super-insulated’ with an airtight overcladding, making the building ‘as close to carbon neutral as is possible’.

A two-phase, £250,000 project, the practice claim the scheme has created ‘an exemplary building, pure in form and appearance and with an emphasis on natural light.’

The building has been shortlisted for the Edinburgh Architectural Association (EAA)’s Small Projects Award 2011.

The full EAA results will be announced on Thursday 14 April.
