New house

Planning Secured

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.


Projects on site






WT Architecture seem to be converting old agricultural buildings all over the Lothians at the moment.

Work to our steading conversion in East Lothian is now underway, with the site being cleared and groundworks commencing.

In Midlothian, work on our granary conversion continues. With the majority of masonry alterations, new steelwork and timber kit complete, the focus moves on to the reconstruction of the roof. Click here to stay updated with the on-site blog.


Planning application approved

We are delighted to announce that our designs for two new houses in Coulter have received Planning approval by South Lanarkshire Council.

Contemporary detailing combined with the use of local materials and vernacular proportions help to sensitively balance the demands of 21st century living with the historic character of a rural Scottish village.

Planning applications approved

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.
