Tresta Private House

Richard Gibson Architects

Located in the scenic area of Tresta in the center of Shetland mainland, overlooking the sea voe (inlet). A contemporary design which uses vernacular proportion and scale with a modest two-story pitched roof arrangement. Semi open-plan layouts and clever use of double height spaces provides this four bedroom house with a spacious experience internally. A highly efficient construction minimises heating demand from the air source heat pump and makes use of natural, passive heating. Built to the highest level of workmanship and using natural and durable materials, the house is a testament to its builder/ owner.
