A home with two faces

The L-shape plan maintains the footprint of the original steading and creates two faces of the building: the public face looking south and east towards the adjacent properties, which will be mainly stone-clad with smaller openings to preserve privacy whilst also reflecting the design and proportions found in the original steading and surrounding agricultural buildings. 

The private face looks north and west across the valley and is more open and contemporary with large expanses of timber cladding and glazing.

This modern timber home has the best location ever

Edinburgh-based professionals Woodside Parker Kirk Architects are in charge of our latest homify 360° discovery – ‘Drumpark Plot 1’, one of two plots to be developed on the site of existing steadings adjacent to a farmhouse. 

Due to structural defects, the existing steading was incapable of economic repair and had to be demolished. However, stone will be reclaimed where possible for external cladding combined with contemporary timber cladding and glazing to create a unique family home.

Let’s take a look!
