Project Name: House at Camusdarrach Sands

Building Type: Private House

Location: Morar, Inverness-shire

Architect: Raw Architecture Workshop

Project: This part subterranean new build house is located on steeply sloping former rough grazing land. The clients, already living in this isolated location, were keen that proposals captured the spectacular sunrise over the mountains and sunset behind the islands. The use of boat building techniques, gusset construction enabled the timber roof finish helped the project team realise and reinforce the original concept – the building should appear simply as another partly submerged rugged form, surrounded by wild grass. Whilst the form is not traditional, the method of construction reflects local expertise, knowledge and endeavour.

Materials Featured: Plywood, Cedar Cladding,
