Planning approval for HC Bothy in East Lothian

08.09.2022

Our proposals for a compact living space in the grounds of a rural cottage in East Lothian, have been granted planning approval. GRAS worked on this development in collaboration with Christopher Bonnar (APS).

Springing from an existing single-pitched rubble-stone and clay tile outhouse, three new intersecting volumes built from reclaimed materials step, twist, and shift in response to the topography, daylight, and views. The result is a form both of its place and out of time.

The proportion and arrangement of interior spaces allow just enough space for comfortable living and working, always in direct visual connection with the surrounding rural landscape of cliff, river, forest, and field. The simple material palette of these interiors consists of concrete, oak, lime plaster, black steel, soft leather, and glass.
