Private House, Forres

The Site lies within the countryside south of Forres with spectacular views over the surrounding countryside.

The House is contemporary while being sympathetic to the vernacular through the use of materials and finishes. The House was orientated and arranged to maximise views and utilise large openings to the south minimising openings to the north to exploit its passive solar potential. Additionally the house is well insulated and has a whole house heat recovery ventilation system. Heating and hot water is provided by a ground source heat pump and the electricity supply is supplemented by a 6KW wind turbine.
