House extension at Lauder


A project for an exension to a traditional stone cottage in the Scottish Borders. The new room is physically isolated from the main accommodation, linked only by a short corridor, as the clients wanted a room for books and maps, dedicated to quietness and study. The main window allows views to a coppice of mature Scots Pine trees which dominate the garden, and a vertical slot window focuses a seating are on one particular tree. The remainder of the space is very simple - book shelves, a built-in desk, and space to allow a table for unfolding maps.

Location: Lauder, Scotland
