Mark and Marjorie Kingston turned to Oliver & Robb Architects to design the ideal home for their scenic Scottish plot. The contemporary timber frame property maximises the south facing site with extensive glazing and a cleverly position balcony that doesn’t obscure views from inside.

An upside-down layout means that the living areas benefit from a stunning outlook over the golf course that the retired couple so enjoy.

The local council also stepped in and requested a beneficial change to the design. “The planners made one or two suggestions, the main being that the large dormer facing the golf course feature a catslide roof as opposed to a flat covering,” says Mark. “I think this really improves the final design, so I’ve got nothing but praise for our council’s planning department.”
