Project Name: Kilmun Housing

Building Type: Housing

Location: Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National park, Argyll

Architect: CP Architects

Project: This housing development comprises four dwellings within a small vacant Forestry Commission site in the settlement of Kilmun. The housing scheme provides energy-efficient and affordable homes which maximise the use of locally sourced Scottish timber, for both forming the structural frame and cladding, and in providing an effective heat source. The cladding boards have a sawn finish, resulting in a textured face, and are horizontally fitted in a panellised format.

Materials Featured: Scottish Larch
