Edwardian Home

A distinctive Edwardian home in north Aberdeenshire, Scotland, was recently given a new lease of life with the addition of an extension inspired by contemporary minimal design. Juxtaposed against the traditional hardwearing granite of the original building, the extension features Kebony cladding which introduces an element of Scandinavian design aesthetic.

Mark Williams of HRI architects in Inverness said: “Buildings are exposed to extreme weather here in Scotland, so materials need to stand up to the forces of the intemperate climate and the test of time. We use Kebony in many projects; it is ‘pickled’ with a natural liquid that gives it the robustness required for the often challenging Scottish climate.”
