Hugged by the rugged landscape of the Cairngorms National Park, Lower Tullochgrue has a tranquil beauty that any family would long to escape to. Created by Brown & Brown Architects, the original brief was to extend the existing home into a nearby steading, but some creative thinking resulted in a particularly ambitious and striking solution.
The architects dismantled the original steading and repurposed the materials for a contemporary timber and glass extension above a replacement stone plinth. Its gravity-defying appearance is a bold addition to the landscape, wrapped in Russwood Siberian Larch (SILA) cladding for a durable finish that complements the natural textures and topography of the site.

Inside, the house has been sympathetically refurbished to offer flexible space accommodating several generations of a large family, and Russwood European Oak flooring in Oat (Prime Plus grade) offers a warm but contemporary aesthetic that connects the various living spaces and improves the sense of seamless flow throughout the home.
