Kyle's View, Scotland

Project: Kyles View House, aka ‘The Den,’ Tighnabruaich, Scotland

Material: Swedish Coated Steel with textured finish

Colour: Colour Anthracite Nearest RAL 7016

Rainwater: Recessed roof gutter with matching Lindab downpipes

A home and studio space reformed from two dilapidated flats on a property that overlooks an area on outstanding natural beauty Kyles of Bute, Scotland. The flats were combined and reconfigured to create a split-level living space, kitchen and look-out Pod all connected by a new sculptural plywood volume. The property was clad in an eco-friendly standing seam metal cladding supplied by The Metal Roof Company.

Designers Technique Architecture and Design & Stallan-Brand architects, Scotland working in collaboration achieved a cosy home and workspace within this three-storey modest 90 sq m volume.

A significant amount of original building material was retained with great effect. Original stonework, combined with the darker contemporary standing seam roof work in contrast to achieve a stunning result.

Kyles View house was awarded the GIA, Glasgow Institute of Architects  small works award 2020.

The Metal Roof Company Director, Sean McHugh commented:

“Occasionally designers steer away from using what is considered a contemporary metal style on an older building. Kyles View is a great marriage between old and new and it works well and is a deserved winner of the GIA 2020 small works award”
