Rebuild of a cottage with two extensions on the Isle of Tiree

The architect has overhauled a cottage on Tiree - the most westerly island of Scotland's Inner Hebrides - rebuilding the original structure and adding two extensions modelled on agricultural sheds.

The 170m2 project combines a traditional Hebridean black house of painted stone with agricultural steadings clad in corrugated sheeting.

The scheme was conceived as a living house, for the clients to use throughout the year, a guest house; containing three bedrooms and associated accommodation; and a utility block containing much needed welly storage and space for the necessary effects required for island life.
