This 10-acre site in Kilmacolm, near Glasgow, was lovingly landscaped by its owner in the 1920s. However, the original house was small and incapable of modernisation as a family home. The family descendants approached ADAM Architecture to design six new homes within the gardens, allowing them to control the quality of the buildings and protect the site from over intensive development. Each of the designs has a unique character and is traditionally inspired, reflecting the established local architecture. The houses disturb as little of the landscape as possible, preserving the unique qualities of this mature landscape setting.
