The gable roof house somehow fits organically into the surrounding nature. Borreraig House has won a number of awards for vernacular Scottish architecture for its original concept. One goal of the project was to create a place to retreat, where you can relax from hectic everyday life. The wooden house has a contemplative-meditative character. It consists of 3 building parts – a living area, a sleeping area and a studio room, all 3 made of local larch wood, oak wood, stone, metal. The use of glass intensifies the communication between architecture and nature.
