Steadings refurbishment and conversion, Auchoish near Lochgilphead, Argyll by studioKAP Architects

  • Comment

In a remote location in Argyll, Scotland, this farm stead project was limited by four particular factors: limited budget, difficult site access, an architect client and a very small contractor

Conforming to the vernacular of traditional steadings – a constrained utilitarian internal space between extruded parallel walls with a low pitched roof defines the building – while integrating more significant architectural interventions in copper, timber and glass, which were inserted in selected areas of the old stone buildings.

The environmental impact is minimised with hot water and underfloor heating provided by a geothermal heat pump, while electrical power for domestic use is generated on site by wind turbine with a bi-directional link into the national grid.
Cost: £250k
