"Keeper House"

Elevated above a river meander, the site of Keeper House is bounded within a Special Area of Conservation encompassing magnificent mature trees. A Neolithic ring fort to the north east, bears witness to the providence of the land. Views of distant mountains emerge through the trees to the east and south.

The client sought a contemporary design approach to capture the unique characteristics of the site, to include a house and a separate lodge with its own aspect and privacy. The brief proposed a low energy design, maximising visibility, connectivity and enjoyment of the natural habitat as project criteria.
