A new-build house constructed for a private client on the east coast of Scotland.  The site overlooks the 17th hole of Elie Golf Course and the design responds to the views over the course to the sea beyond.  The bedrooms and other service spaces are located on the ground floor and the reception areas above them with large expanses of floor to ceiling glazing and terraces.  The first floor is designed as a single space and top lit by Scotland’s largest residential roof light.


The project was runner-up in the DIA’s “Best New House” awards in 2017.
