ak|a have developed proposals for alterations and extension of a traditional Aberdeenshire cottage in Corgarff. The proposal is for additional accommodation including a Garden Room, additional bedrooms and utilities area.
The design response incorporated a vernacular form however, it is
skewed so as not to enclose the garden area and maximise on southlight and westerly views to Corgarff Castle. A single storey flat roof form connects the existing cottage to the new pitched roof form. The flat room form makes a deliberate connection from old to new and its highly glazed elevations ensures the original facade is not lost.
