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
