Gearrannan Blackhouse Village

Anderson Associates: Chartered Architect Ltd

This project centred on two blackhouses within this Grade A Listed Conservation Village. The work entailed gaining Listed Building Consent in close collaboration with Historic Scotland on these properties and overseeing the restoration through to completion. This work was complicated by the fact that previous works carried out were not consistent with conservation principles nor following historical instruction techniques and procedures consistent with these forms of dwellings. External walls, chimneys, thatching, etc., were all subject to analysis, development and restoration.
