The White House, Mutehill

The building’s form, has been influenced by a blend of the client's affection for both their Robert Adam designed circular living room in Lanark and Melnikov’s House in Moscow fused with the memory of the powerful volumetric white purity of Scotland’s west coast lighthouse buildings.

A stepped ramp and bridge lead directly to first floor entrance which is marked by the form of the turrets with their vertical window strips. However once inside the living space is fused by the super circled form of the linking balcony structure which opens up to the estuary view. The lower ground floor rooms open out onto future lawns which also look out across the estuary.
