A short story about a lifelong dedication.
Contained within the stone and lime plaster outer shell, the interior is conceived as a series of finely detailed oak boxes, defining spaces within and around them.
Space is given in equal measure to sleeping, eating, living and bathing. Only the most necessary objects are placed in each space and the detail and finish of every piece has been painstakingly considered, reduced to their essential form, all constructed from a simple material palette of stone, timber, metal and glass.
The living room has a large, deep-set window lined in oak allowing immersive views of the ever-changing wild landscape and weather outside. It is flanked by an open fire, burning wood sustainably sourced from the estate.
In reference to the connection with the natural ground outside, the ground flooring is constructed of a locally-mined caitness stone, heated to be warm underfoot.
The kitchen itself is exquisitely crafted in the same Danish oak used throughout the house, while above it a narrow ribbon window at eye level provides panoramic views outside.
The bathroom is generously sized relative to the rest of the house, allowing space to enjoy extended bathing in the rain shower or lying in the window-side bath looking out to Ben Loyal.
The bedroom is the simplest of spaces, containing just a few select pieces of furniture and a bed which was designed and built for the room.
The house is tailormade for 2 persons and with extra beds 1-2 small children.
"The Vikings are coming to the North of Scotland,
but they come in peace with some rather nice interior design"
