Rural Design Architects's Black House Is a Rustic Wonderland

Efficient design exemplified.

By //Design

Scottish imprint Rural Design Architects aims to fulfill its name with each build: Specializing in timber-based construction, the company crafts sustainable spaces in the Scottish Highlands and Islands of Scotland. Its Black House, meant to house a small artist family, was recently completed in the Highlands.

Crafted to withstand time and the elements, the Black House was constructed on a strict budget with aims to comfortably house a family of three, along with a studio and study. Rural Design Architects sought to channel the organic splendor of the surrounding environment, crafting a squat, boxy structure that doesn’t obstruct the stunning views, embedded with large windows that frame the distant Loch Bracadale. Taking cues from minimal footprint ad-hoc structures, the corrugated cladding informing the structure complements the natural vista, while the inside offers appropriately cozy wood detailing and streamlined floorplans that eschew extra junctions or hallways.

Head to the Rural Design Architects’s website for more info on the company’s creations. On the other end of the spectrum, this Spanish home channels luxury relaxation and comfort.
