Floating House Stonehaven


A new extension and internal alterations to elevate a mundane 1990s timber kit volume housebuilder's offering into the 21st century. The existing house has a conservatory which is being removed to create a new garden room with woodburning stove and seating area which is wrapped in western red cedar cladding and high performance triple glazed window units. The steel frame allows the formation of an impressive cantilever which provides a nook outside with views towards the impressive Stonehaven Harbour. 


Internally there are some adjustments to increase the size of the laundry room, to change the internal stair into a bespoke open storage solution, and to introduce a new bedroom and ensuite within the curtilage of the former garage.
