Project Name: The Stone House

Building Type: Residential

Location: Scotland’s Housing Expo, Milton of Leys, Inverness

Architect: NORD

Project: The ‘Stone House’ is a terrace of four family sized houses, each orientated around a private garden with the upper levels having access to a private terrace. As the name suggests, the building is externally constructed from Caithness stone. The designers drew on vernacular forms, to create a long, low, one and a half storey terrace with an inhabited roof space, using

indigenous materials and the specific landscape setting as inspiration with its seasonal changes in colour, texture and light.

Materials Featured: Caithness Stone

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.
