Black House


The quest for home is a primitive pull that none of us can ignore. No matter how much you might consider yourself nomadic, how much you might love the freedom of travelling; ultimately we will each crave a place to call our own.

When Rural Design were approached to build a family home with big dreams and a tight budget, they knew it wouldn't be without difficulty. The site, located on the west coast of the beautiful Isle Of Skye, was particularly vulnerable to the full force of nature's hostility. It also needed to be a self build - quick and easy to assemble - light on its environmental footprint and safe and warm against the elements.

The result is a single-story, mono pitched, cladded beauty that looks so wondrous in its surroundings that it damn near hurts our eyes.

Brief = nailed.
