Best House in Scotland

A house designed by HebHomes' sister company Dualchas Building Design has won an award for the best residential house in Scotland at the annual Scottish Design Awards.   The house at Boreraig on the Isle of Skye was praised for its striking interiors and beautifully landscaped setting.  Designed by HebHomes director Neil Stephen, the house is an abstract interpretation of the Hebridean blackhouse, reflecting the crofting background of the client's family and his own Buddism.

 

Neil said, ' This award is recognition for an excellent client who was willing to embrace our ideas and did not compromise on quality.  The end result is special and I am delighted that both modern architecture and the Highland's traditional built form have been honoured'.

 

This house has also been shortlisted for the RIAS Awards.
