A condition of planning consent is that the houses have a consistent theme and draw from a pattern-book – using a blend of timber frames, hemp-lime construction, and a sustainable interpretation of Scottish traditional building.

As Roderick James explains, “Although this is a development, each house will be individually designed and built to a detailed personal brief. The emerging designs are sensitive, unusual, exciting, and incorporate as many sustainable elements as their budget can cover.The houses draw on the practice’s experience of designing and building around 1000 houses in many countries, and are being built by an excellent local builder, Angus MacDonald.
