Mr & Mrs Buchannan came to us with a brief to create a new family home in the heart of the Ury Estate near Stonehaven. The site was a former agricultural shed next to a converted steading and sat on a slope which then met the Ury Burn.
The design evolved to suit the sloping site by creating a unique split level home which has two wings. The main front wing houses all bedrooms, bathrooms, double garage and utility spaces while the rear wing houses a large open plan family room, kitchen and dining areas with a private lounge. The exterior was designed to suit a more rural agricultural style with large vertical proportioned openings, pitched slated roofs and sensitive materials finished off with locally sourced stone walls and an array of trees and soft landscaping.
