We have secured Planning permission for a new house near Newport upon Tay, overlooking the Firth of Tay and across the water to Dundee. The house is positioned in a gently sloping parkland setting, against a backdrop of trees, sinking slightly into the slope. On approach the house is overtly closed down and private, and built up in stone reclaimed from nearby ruins. On the other side the house is more open and luxuriates in the open views.
RIBA rather slipped this one under the radar in June, but we were delighted to discover this week that after its success at the RIAS awards our Mill conversion project has been placed on the long list of 18 projects for the Manser Medal 2015.
The Manser Medal is awarded each year to the best new house designed by an Architect in the UK, and represents the pinnacle of house design accolades. The short list will be announced by RIBA on the 3rd September.
We are pleased see our recently completed Mill conversion in the Scottish Borders featured in this months 100th Anniversary Edition of Homes & Interiors Scotland.

We are delighted for the people of Camuscross and Duisdale on the Isle of Skye, as they have now received confirmation of their £712,000 funding pot from Coastal Communities Fund. This is the last piece of the puzzle that will now allow this special building to slowly start appearing out of what is currently only an innocuous area of boggy land.

We are delighted to reveal that our designs for a new house and refurbished steading on the shores of Loch Tummel have been granted Planning approval by Perth & Kinross Council. The council were highly supportive of the application to replace a rather tired and unspectacular farmhouse with an exceptional new home. We now look forward to progressing the scheme through technical design over the coming months.

WT Architecture have been spending the last few days down in the Scottish Borders with eminent architectural photographer Andrew Lee, getting some shots done of our recently completed mill conversion near Biggar. We are eagerly awaiting delivery of the finished products, and look forward to posting them online soon.
A sneak peek at designs WT Architecture have been working on for a new house in rural Perthshire. The new house responds to a legacy of existing buildings on the site as well as its dramatic topography. The scheme also includes work to a converted steading. We look forward to posting more images as the project progresses throughout this year.
WT Architecture have developed designs for a new extension to a blackhouse on a beach on the Isle of Tiree. The form of the building echoes the traditional heavy black roofs found on the island. The design frames the views to the distant islands over the Sound of Gunna.
Great news as the Camuscross and Duisdale community on the Isle of Skye receive a grant from the Lottery for the proposed Community Hub project. WT Architecture look forward to developing the detailed technical designs for this project alongside the other design team members in the coming months.
