Forever Cottage, TAIN


The Kyle Centre, Tongue is a community health and well-being hub run by North Coast Connection. This popular service grew in demand but the existing building was lacking in space and facilities.

The project saw the building completely renovated and reorganised internally. Multi-use spaces were carved out of the existing footprint and supported by two modest extensions; a rear extension providing sanitary and enhanced catering accommodation and new entrance porch providing a much needed windbreak from the weather. The sun lounge extension to the west, provides a generous new gathering space to enjoy the dramatic views over the Kyle of Tongue and Castle Varrich.

This project involved the creation of a new house within the garden ground of the family home. Sutherland Road comprises a collection of large stone built detached villas close to the boundary of the Conservation Area.

This 3 bedroom house is modest in size and adopts traditional proportions whilst utilising a mix of stone, smooth render and larch cladding. The front elevation presents a formal façade to the streetscape, continuing the building line, whilst the rear opens to the private garden with large areas of glazing and a glazed covered canopy. 
Completed in summer 2015, this compact three-bedroom bungalow was built to a highly insulated standard and finished in a mix of render and timber cladding to the walls and profiled metal sheets to the roof. The lounge faces south and benefits from the solar gains and an open elevated view. The car port provides undercover access to a workshop direct from the utility room. The heating system utilises an air source unit and PV panels feeding into a heat store.
