Loch Earn, Scotland

Denizen Works have won planning for a major extension to a small cottage on the banks of Loch Earn in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.

The existing house sits on a north facing slope with dramatic views over the loch. The proposed addition contains utility space, a new kitchen/dining hall and living space. Our design looks to make the most of the spectacular views while giving sheltered outdoor seating spaces and a low impact on the approach.

From the road the addition is a simple single storey block which steps down the slope and culminates in a lofty seating space with a picture window framing the view. This picture window is formed through a distortion of the plan around the concrete hearth.

Area: 240m²  ・  Budget: NA  ・  Completion: Spring 2018・ Client: Private
