This new house for a retired farmer enjoys dramatic views to the Cheviot Hills to the south and Hume Castle to the north. The contemporary design has its roots in the traditional buildings of the Berwickshire countryside, yet the ground floor is open-plan and all areas are flooded with natural light. The house is extremely energy efficient and benefits from a ground source heat pump with a mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system. Large areas of glass on the south elevation provide passive solar gain. The project was winner of Scottish Borders Council's Architectural Award for Rural New Build 2011.
