hurtiso house

Categories: homes

Currently under construction….this new-build, multi layered dwelling, has been carefully designed to maximise the potential of the site and respond to a tight client brief.

With adjacent dwellings to the North-east and South-west, this home had to address a narrow window of seaward views to the South, offer privacy to the occupants and simultaneously respect the established views of the neighbours!

Designed as a contemporary interpretation of the traditional grouping of buildings common amongst Orcadian farm-steads; the dwelling consists of three essentially separate forms with glazed links, arranged around a central, private, South-facing courtyard.

Pitched and monopitched roof forms are combined at varying levels to utilise traditional forms with a modern interpretation.
