Keeper’s Cottage,

Fife





Set on a sloping, west-facing site on the edge of Dunfermline, this new three bedroom house will be partially raised above the ground on a steel substructure, giving it a feeling of lightness.


Similar to other projects that we have designed, the house is linked to a separate garage, helping to create a sheltered and welcoming entrance courtyard.


A simple palette of materials, including locally-sourced untreated larch cladding, standing seam metal roofing and dry stone walling reflect its rural, semi-agricultural setting.


A highly insulated, draughtproof timber frame, together with solar gains from the triple-glazed south and west-facing windows, will help to reduce the need for heating from the wood burning stove and solar thermal panels.
