Private house overlooking the Queen's Course at Gleneagles

While the main living spaces at first-floor level are arranged in an open-plan manner, each is articulated through the angular geometry as a more variable sequence of spaces - each space taking on its own specific qualities of daylighting, ceiling height and view.

The ground floor, characterised with darker finishes, houses four bedrooms, some utility spaces, and a big circulation and living space with generous views out over the private garden.

The character of the upper level is lighter and loftier, addressing the views out over the golf course to the distant mountains. The eroded form of the upper block is smaller in area than the base, thereby creating a series of external terraces.
