Our design ideas have their roots in traditional houses and vernacular architecture of the Outer Hebrides and the western seaboard of Scotland. They are based on black houses and have been developed to create: minimum energy living spaces; bio-diversity; have minimum impact on the natural landscape and blend into their surroundings.
We hold to a belief that traditional forms of buildings developed in an evolutionary way and are environmentally friendly and sympathetic to the landscape.
Our buildings should: improve with the passage of time; help create a sense of identity, locality and place; encourage ownership of the design by those who live in them; encourage the use of traditional skills and training.
