New House Completed in North Berwick

Helen Lucas Architects are delighted that this contemporary, new build house is complete.


Overlooking the beach and sea, the colours of the environment leap into this modern stone clad house. The windows were carefully set out to capture the islands scattered in the North Sea at North Berwick, a coastal town approximately an hour from Edinburgh. The house is built from natural materials, stone, zinc and lime render. Wood fibre insulation was specified for breathability and the building was designed to be extremely energy efficient.


After careful consideration the clients decided to keep the interior very neutral to contrast with the colours in the landscape at this magnificent site.
