Future-proofing and accessibility principles are being applied to this rural conversion project in the Scottish Borders.

A disused agricultural building will be regenerated and extended to form a two storey house. The contemporary addition is designed to complement and celebrate the existing textures, showing that design need not be compromised to enable a financially viable development. The building layout has been configured to allow for changing needs over time, with interchangeable functions meaning the house can have between two and four bedrooms. The layout is ideal for a young family, but enables flexibility as children grow up and for continued use into the owner’s senior years. Everyone involved is looking forward to taking the project forward, ensuring protection of the building’s character, whilst looking to the future.

Douglas Strachan is a Chartered Architect specialising in contemporary self-build houses and high quality extensions, regeneration and community projects, in Midlothian, Edinburgh and beyond. Many people dream of a bespoke house and having a direct involvement in its design and construction. As all projects are unique, achieving this requires a bespoke service from dedicated design professionals. Design is essentially a decision making process, which relies on a productive dialogue and expert advice. Douglas Strachan provides this through a process of sharing images, sketching and discussion, leading to the development of a personalised brief and bespoke designs. As the project moves forward, they can also provide traditional services, such as making applications for statutory consents and preparing technical information for construction. The most successful projects also benefit from professional oversight and payment certification during the construction phase
