Featured Buildings by ICOSIS, alphabetical:

Hope Pathhead
The new house, named “Hope” after the site, is positioned where there was previously a large timber-framed, corrugated iron clad agricultural shed. The building sits into the slope of the site, taking advantage of the existing hole left after the demolition of the barn.
The approach is at a mid-level on the site, allowing the main living accommodation to be on the upper “entrance level”. Bedrooms, bathrooms, utility room, and a study are on the more private lower level, which overlooks fields to the south.

Date built: 2009-

One of the main practical issues is the layout of the building with the Kitchen at one end and the only route to the main hall via the Glen suite. This makes it difficult to lease the building to more than one group at a time, severely limiting its potential. The external stage to the north is also infrequently used whilst the internal stage is regarded as too small and with poor access for events set-up.

Private House near Eddleston, Scottish Borders, Scotland
Date built: 2009-

The extension wraps around the original building and the new timber-clad two storey element is linked to it by a single-storey section which extends along the rear elevation, forming a new entrance hall and circulation. Timber from the heavily wooded site will be used as internal finishes and as a continued source of fuel for the bio-mass boiler.

Signal Station House, North Queensferry, Scotland
Date built: 2005

Signal Station House
The design of the new building was conceived as a simple box sitting adjacent to the original octagonal tower, but isolated to maintain a respectful separation and emphasise the distinct form of the original structure.

Sycamore House, near Biggar, Scotland
Date built: 2007-08

The bedrooms & garage are located on the ground floor allowing the open kitchen/dining/living room upstairs elevated views across the valley and onto the grass roof terrace. Downstairs, the main bedrooms window cills are at grass level to the raised garden.
