Project Name: Brockloch Bothy

Building Type: holiday home

Location: Dumfries and Galloway

Designer: Sam Booth

Project: ‘Brockloch Bothy’ is comprised of four modular ‘pods’, each with its own pyramid roof and roof light. The off grid building is rented out as a holiday let year round. The exterior of the Bothy is clad in panels of horizontal and vertical larch. Scottish Larch is a naturally durable timber and ideal for external cladding purposes due to the resin and extracts in the wood. Pale spruce Cross Laminated Timber panels comprise the structure lining the buildings’ interiors and the natural wood grain finish brings the outdoors in. The walls, floor and roof of the bothy are filled with thick layers of sheepswool insulation for a comfortable interior environment all year round.

Materials Featured: Cross Laminated Timber, Scottish Larch, clay paint, Sheep’s wool insulation
