A Light Touch on the Landscape

Delicate concrete feet cast for a new house in Roshven.


The new house stands on a rocky beach just above the high tide line. This low carbon house has a green oak frame. The main timber columns land on these neat little concrete pads. This means that the ground beneath the house is relatively unaffected by the buildings presence.


Wherever possible we would recommend a light touch on the landscape. We have used this strategy on other remote projects in beautiful locations where preserving the landscape is of the utmost priority. Frisealach - another costal project on a rocky site - was completed in 2007.
