This is a 4 bedroomed family house with equally sized living room, dining room and kitchen arranged along the seaward elevation. The main entrance is to the rear of the property echoing the entrance position and general form of the client's much-loved original home immediately next door. The entrance vestibule leads to a double height staircase hall onto which all the principal rooms connect.

This project was procured through Douglas Forrest Architects. This was a new home for a family friend retaining the memory and some salvaged fabric of the owner's grandfather's tenant farmhouse and carefully scaled in sympathy with this. The main space is the large drawing room leading into a study overlooked by the master suite. Also overlooking this is an artist's studio opening onto a roof terrace with views over the farmland and beyond. The entrance hall and diningroom were located within the footprint of the former building.

This is an as yet unbuilt proposal for a family friend who was at the time the only GP serving the small scattered community on the Isle of Jura. This project consisted of a Doctors house and separate surgery block for the Doctor, pharmacy and district nurse with a self-contained annexe for a locum doctor with fully accessible ramp access and accessible shower room.

These are a set of new gates set in the existing 19th c poured-concrete gatepiers ( listed mind, grade A ! ). They are included here but could be regarded as 'conservation' or 'interpretation' as they were intended as a didactic tool - containing significant names from site's history but are made from the conspicuously modern material of galvanized mild steel. These were constructed, painted gloss black and gilded by Dave Eastwood and Derek Knott.
