Leith-based Taylor Architecture Practice (TAP) has secured planning permission for this three-bedroom home in the Scottish Borders
The detached £200,000 house is earmarked for a sloped, riverside site at Pyatshaw Burn, 4.5 miles away from Lauder - the nearest town.
A spokesman for the practice said: ‘What appears fom the outside to be a single storey house, in fact has four different internal floor levels.
‘The house has been organised to follow the slope of the hillside, with an entrance level at the lowest point nearest the road and a mid-level bedroom half-way up; the accomodation linked by a hallway on the glazed west facade.’
The building has been designed to relate to the ‘traditional pitched roof barns’ and local houses and features roof planes made of zinc and walls clad in a dark stained timber rainscreen with a white brick plinth.
The practice hopes construction on the scheme will start ‘early next year’ and complete in the summer.
