Architect’s choices

The interior is characterised by a neutral treatment to walls and ceilings, exploiting the unique, ever-changing, but sometimes scarce Hebridean daylight. A palette of light-coloured stone tile combined with engineered oak flooring in two finishes helps to define distinct places within the unorthodox-shaped internal spaces and relate these to particular aspects of the exterior landscape. The cool ambience of the interior contrasts with the dark, rugged texture of the exterior, which provides a robust cloak against the (often) unyielding climate.
