Project: Conversion, renovation & extension

Self build house plans re-created using Build It 3D Home Design Software
Helena Chugay and Crawford Currie faced the challenge of renovating an existing cottage, converting a 16th century mill, and creating a contemporary extension – all while ensuring each very different element complemented the others.
The couple called on the services of Scottish well-known architecture practice Dualchas, as they were keen not to cut corners for this special project.
The finished home captures the working history of the mill while adding a contemporary light-filled living area that hangs daringly over a river, thanks to the use of a cantilever.
