The Cient’s brief was to create a small one bedroom house within the rocky landscape of Locheport. The house faces south towards a small freshwater loch and takes in the views towards the Eaval mountain. The concept was to dig the house into the rock face and hide it from the view from the road with a turf roof that blends into the hill. A large insulated retaining wall will be created to the north side and the south elevation will house large glazed units to take in the views. A small wood burning stove will provide the heating. Construction is expected to commence in Autumn 2013.
