Glassel

This 1½ storey home is similar in design to the Borve, providing three bedrooms over two floors. The southern elevation shows a single storey face to the exterior while building the scale to 1½ storeys at the rear and allowing substantial accommodation within a modest exterior size.

Internal accommodation is organised around a central core staircase and voids to the kitchen and main living space. Ample use of rooflights provides generous amounts of daylight with the open ceilings making the spaces feel much bigger than the exterior would suggest. The open study and gallery to the first floor sit over the kitchen space creating a dramatic interaction between spaces.

The house can be clad in various forms to suit both suburban and countryside settings and would be particularly at home as a timber clad house in a woodland setting. The extended roof sections could be used for log storage against a stone finish, complementing the countryside look.
