Arc Architects

The Client's brief was to create a modern and light space, whilst retaining the character of the old building. The airy and open public spaces contrast with more intimate individual rooms.

Glimpsed views of the sea inspired us to create a series of carefully framed views within the house and to the outside. The three floors of the house are drawn together by two ribbon stairs flowing vertically, providing a strong visual connection between the public spaces.

The extensive renovation was carried out using natural, environmentally-friendly materials, locally sourced where possible.

The project was awarded first place in the 'Architectural Excellence' Creative Fife Awards.
