House No.7 sits on the beautiful Island of Tiree, the western-most of the inner Hebrides, with views out across the machair, the sea and the islands beyond. Conceived as a Living House, for the clients to use throughout the year, a Guest House; containing three bedrooms and associated accommodation; and the Utility; containing much needed welly storage and space for the necessary effects required for island life. 

The architecture is characterised by a mix of both a traditional black house and agricultural steadings all integrated into the landscape.

House No.7 has won numerous awards including Grand Designs Home of the Year and the Stephen Lawrence Prize. The house has also been published widely. Click on the links below to read more about the house:
