The Roundhouse

The spectacular open-plan living area of the Roundhouse is zoned for functional and seasonal use. Solar gain is achieved via the tall self‑cleaning windows of the southfacing sunroom. The living roof is based on alpine sedum, engineered on the reciprocal frame system with nine laminated beams shielded in copper on the upper surface, revealed internally. The upper chamber has a copper cupola roof rising in the shape of a spire.

All rooms benefit from huge views to the hills, and across the river Spey. Construction materials, siting, and services are all environmentally appropriate. The Roundhouse is clad with woodfibre coated with lime render, tinted with warm earth pigments such as ochre and burnt umber. The upper chamber enjoys an impressive circular roof space.

The Crofthouse

The Crofthouse has vertical timber cladding and a dramatic roof of galvanised steel with a custom-rolled radiused apex. The building is heated with a ground-sourced heatpump. Power consumption is supported by a 5kw photovoltaic array. The Crofthouse features a master bedroom, twin bedrooms nestling into the woodlined roof apex, and an office/bedroom annex – spaces of warmth with grand views across the strath.

Both buildings have open sunny decks with breathtaking views to the south and west. The Crofthouse includes a cavernous garage/ activity space.
