In the summer of 2016, Paterson Gordon Architecture were approached to renovate an existing steading that stood in a derelict state. However, the stunning views of Loch Lomond created an inspiring opportunity to design and build a modern family home.
In 2016 Mr Smith visited a self build show in Edinburgh and a long house design for a 11/2 story building caught his eye. With it being a new build house, this opened up an opportunity to use energy efficient SIP panels and to provide accommodation within a comfortable retirement home.
Westhill Community Church was a new, green field project in Aberdeenshire. Its highly contemporary style was designed for maximum functionality and to encourage use by the wider community. Natural light and climate controllability were the central considerations for the clients of McLean Architects during initial discussions - a common request for high ceiling, large space developments.
When architects McLean were commissioned to bring light into both large and small areas at a busy community hub they turned to FAKRO for help and support, creating a welcoming, vibrant building for the people of Dumfries.
