Detached contemporary home set in mature woodland in the heart of St. Andrews
- Location St. Andrews, Scotland
- Client Mr & Mrs McLeod
- Completion 2022
Designed to be low impact and set within the landscape, due to its proximity to a prominent listed building. The main living spaces are predominantly south facing and situated on the upper floor, giving excellent views through the trees and beyond.
An elongated planning process due to proximity of protected trees and listed buildings. The application was supported by Fife Council planners but unfortunately turned down at the planning committee by the local councillors. A subsequent appeal to the Scottish Government was successful.
Extremely challenging site due to tree protection issues and nearby listed buildings. A committed client and with the support of Neil Gray Planning Consultants and Rankin Fraser Landscape Architects, a planning permission was achieved.
Largely steel framed with timber infill panels. Clad in iroko and ashlar sandstone and infilled with low profile aluminium windows and doors.
