On the tiny island of Coll with just two hundred residents off the coast of Scotland sits a modest masterwork of modern renovation – a brand new home slotted delicately inside the (reinforced) crumbling stone ruins of an ancient local manor.
This conversion in the Irish village of Broughshane started out with something that was already truly an object of beauty: a crumbling old stone barn. With some clever manipulation, they turned the old barn into a light-filled, contemporary living space.
Scottish home by WT Architecture poses as an old stone mill
The Mill house by WT Architecture. The blackened timber walls of this family holiday home are hidden within the shell of an old stone mill in the Scottish countryside. The old grain threshing mill forms part of Southside Steading, a collection of disused farm buildings that nestle into a hill overlooking a valley in the Scottish Borders.
