The Tinhouse | Rural Design

cottish architecture studio Rural Design has completed a shed-like holiday home on Scotland’s Isle of Skye, featuring corrugated aluminium walls that reference local agricultural buildings. The house is situated on a steep hillside site on the northwestern tip of the island, with views towards the Outer Hebridean islands.Its design is intended to embody the studio’s simple and economical approach to its projects, which also include a small wooden house with a fully glazed facade framing views of its surroundings. The aluminium surfaces help to protect the building from the fierce storms that regularly batter the island, with minimal window openings.
