4 Linsiader

 

to calanais.jpg

A new house on a remote croft in the tiny west coast settlement of Linsiadar, just across Loch Ceann Hulabhig from the ancient stone circle of Calanais. Current buildings on the site include the remains of three former agricultural buildings.

We are seeking to re-inhabit the site in such a way as to regenerate or consolidate the best of its existing characteristics. The new building engages physically with the ruined shell of the late 18th Century Tacksman’s house, reinhabiting and preserving its footprint with a raised sheltered garden, greenhouse and a tower for study and reflection on the wider landscape.
