    Default House No.7 in Scotland

    House No.7 cottage and extensions

    London studio Denizen Works has overhauled a cottage in Scotland's Outer Hebrides by rebuilding the original structure and adding two extensions modelled on agricultural sheds.
    Architect Murray Kerr of Denizen Works completed this project for his parents, who had bought an ageing house on the Isle of Tiree and planned to renovate it and live there for five months of the year.
    After discovering the original structure was beyond repair, the architect had to instead rebuild it before adding two new wings that are designed to reference the local agricultural vernacular.
    The stone cottage now functions as a guest house, with bedrooms on both floors and a generous living room.
    Behind it, a bunker-like structure is used as the main house. The exterior of this building is made from galvanised steel and corrugated fibre cement, and it has a curved roof profile.
    The upper level houses a large timber-lined kitchen and dining room, while stairs lead down to an en suite bedroom that is slightly sunken into the ground.
    A third wing was also added and serves as a utility area. It contains a laundry area, a wet room where residents can clean sand off their shoes and a studio that children can use for painting.

    Me too. Once the corrugated steel cladding gets a bit less shiny and more weathered (LOTS of weather in the Hebrides) it will blend into the landscape more. I love the kitchen, the cozy wooden cladding and assume it's all very well insulated. Those long, dark, bleak, cold winters........ Not sure I'd actually want to live there.

    I love that the outside looks like a sheep to me. I really like the interior too so I'll just move my things in.

    The outside is weird. The inside is kinda cool. So I'll just stay inside most of the time.

    No bagpipes. No kilts. Pretty weak.
