Design: Paterson Architects

Seton Mains East Lothian House Modern Scottish House

A new 3 bedroom timber framed 120m² house built on the edge of a traditional East Lothian farm steading. Clad in Western red cedar the superstructure sits on a waterproof concrete base cut into the site grade.

Conceived as a modern interpretation of traditional rural artisan dwellings, the house draws on the language of autonomous agricultural structures and their settings within rural environments: Often in stark, but harmonious opposition to their surroundings.

The building, which is planed upside down, provides sleeping and sanitary accommodation on the ground floor, with an open plan living space on the first. Large openings are carefully sited to take advantage of spectacular views over the Firth of Forth to the North and East, with further views of Edinburgh to the west; whilst minimising overlooking of neighbouring properties. Sun and daylight are brought deep into the plan by two large overhead rooflights.
