KRA transformed the dilapidated courtyard of stone buildings into a striking modern house over 600m 2 . The large family house is set in 3 acres and is on the outskirts of the historic village of West Linton.

The external walls were in an almost demolished state and were rebuilt incorporating super insulation standards such that no heating was needed during the winter months although under floor heating was incorporated throughout as a back up.

Even more dramatic than the elegant stone walls outside is the remarkable interior space that incorporates a large glazed family room which all other living rooms are off. The master bedroom  incorporates ensuites and dressing areas.  The Glulam columns and roof are topped by a fully glazed roof in "Low E" glass with opening panels and a stair to the children’s bedroom wing within.

The total designs of the inside and outside spaces were fused together into one for a complete lifestyle.
