'Holiday House' by Rural Design

The Scottish practice Rural Design is specialised in contemporary architecture for the Highlands of Scotland. On Isle of Skye, an island close to the Scottish westcoast, they realised this holiday house.

Here is what the architects explain:

„On first visiting the site it was difficult to see how any proposal could succeed if it disrupted a landscape that did not lend itself to intervention. The decision to lift the building off the ground on small piloti released the design from convention and allowed it to relate to the wider context – the views to the north and the sun from the south. The form of the house deliberately narrows to the north, reducing its surface area, and leans into the weather.
The entrance bridge lifts one off the landscape and immediately upon entering one is connected with the view through the fully-glazed elevation to the north. The other windows are secondary and draw light into the two storey volume.
Simple timber construction reinforces the character of the house as a visitor in the ancient landscape.“
