Rainbows’ End, Dornoch
This project began with a 3 bedroom house that our clients wanted to transform into a larger property that took full advantage of the truly breathtaking views over Loch Fleet in Sutherland. The scheme design proposal featured a new Sun Lounge and Covered Outdoor Room so the view could be appreciated whether sitting inside or out. The open-plan Lounge and Kitchen was enlarged, as were the windows looking out from these principal spaces. To the rear of the house a new Garage and Car Port were added and a large Master Bedroom was formed. The roof was re-covered in natural slate instead of concrete tiles and the entire house was insulated and new window installed. Finally a new pellet boiler heating system was installed. The works did truly transform the property and input from our clients certainly contributed to the finished product. In 2017 Blueprint Architecture was delighted to be awarded the President’s Medal for this project from the Inverness Architects Association (IAA) who are the local chapter of the RIAS. The house was also a Finalist in the 2020 Scotland's Home of the Year competition on BBC Scotland.
