The Skerrie House

Oliver Chapman Architects Ltd

We were commissioned to design an extension to an early 19th Century fishing cottage overlooking the sea in Fife's East Neuk. This involved the challenge of opening and re-engaging living areas to face the sea, while retaining the character of the existing dwelling.

A 19th century stair to the rear of the original house forms the crux of the new plan, wrapped by a light glazed extension containing a new living room and kitchen beneath a folded roof form. Moving through the dwelling offers a contrast in light and scale, heightened by oblique views and glimpses of the sea.
