The inspiration for the distinctive form of this house in the Isle of Harris comes from its dramatic location on the edge of a steep cliff with the waves crashing on to the rocks below. The wave form of the roof echoes the sea, distant islands in the seaward views, hills and the drama of life in the Outer Hebrides.
The house is divided into three main areas: the large central Living, Dining, Kitchen area, two Guest Bedrooms at one end and a Master en-suite at the other end. All of the main spaces take advantage of the dramatic seaward southern views. Part of the brief for this house was to create a home that could adapt over time to the changing needs of the clients. The design responds to this with flexible spaces that add to the flowing form of the building.
