Bridge of Muchalls, Steading Conversion

The Brief

  • To convert an existing steading wing to a new open plan living dining/kitchen
  • To provide 1-2 additional bedrooms

The Design

  • The existing dwelling which occupies a previously converted steading building, is re-configured at ground floor level to create 2 new bedrooms where the existing living space is accommodated.
  • The redundant steading is converted to provide a large double height living/dining space with a wood-burning stove.
  • A new kitchen occupies one end of the steading, with a mezzanine level over accessed by a spiral stair. The mezzanine provides a study/sitting area at first floor.
  • Existing storage shed and stables are demolished.
  • A new entrance door and lobby is created which gives a more generous entrance to the dwelling.
