This bothy is one of several buildings at Wester Lawrenceton Farm. Originally constructed as a basic dwelling it had, following years of neglect, become a ruin. The client's desire for a private living space inspired a decision to renovate the structure. Key was the choice not to include a full kitchen as meals were shared in the main farmhouse. This approach, very much part of a vision to 'living lighter on the earth', is central to the project. It reflects in the well-considered design, a focus on energy efficiency and the extensive use of local and natural materials.
