Architect: Paterson Architects
This timber-framed house, on the edge of a traditional East Lothian farm, was conceived as 'a modern interpretation of traditional rural artisan dwellings'. The 'upside-down' plan has three bedrooms on the ground floor, with an open-plan living space on the first. Large openings have been made in the western red cedar-clad exterior, positioned to take advantage of spectacular views over the Firth of Forth to the north and east, with further views of Edinburgh to the west. Rooflights bring daylight into the centre of the house.
