Download: Case Study 27 Broughty Ferry House

Project Name: Broughty Ferry House

Building Type: Private Residential

Location: Broughty Ferry, Angus

Architect: The Voigt Partnership

Project: The client for this project approached the architect with a request to design a house that reflected both its surroundings and the interests of the resident. The one-storey building has a variety of different finishes but is built primarily of timber, glass and stone with a grass roof. The long, low building is designed to take maximum advantage of the seafront location while at

the same time minimising disruption to the views of the adjacent neighbours, by having a grass roof. The stone is sourced locally from Pitairlie Quarry, which is less than 20 miles (32 km) from the site, and given the small pieces involved, some of this material is recycled from the quarrying process.

Materials Featured: Pitairlie Stone, Lime Mortar


Case Study 26 – Acheson House

The refurbishment of the roof at Acheson House is important, as one of a very small number of buildings to use Scottish stone as a roofing material.
