Faichemard Farm: Paper Igloo Architecture & Design

27th Feb 2014

Braving the weather and eventually fleeing from it when it snowed, I spent a couple of days in the Highlands photographing this stunning and unusual house in the Highlands by Paper Igloo Architecture & Design. The three buildings one of which was an existing cottage are linked by glazed bridges and offer considered views out to the stunning landscape at every opportunity. It was a joy to photograph this house not only as Mhairi and Martin were so welcoming, but also because the detailing and juxtaposition of the different materials used throughout are wonderful and I loved the corten steel tower. To add even more character into the mix one of the buildings wraps itself around an existing 100 year old apple tree!

Timberplay Scotland at Dumfries House

12th Feb 2014

I spent a great couple of hours at the stunning grounds of Dumfries House, documenting and trying to keep up with the pupils of St.Patrick’s school as they played at the fab new play park by Timberplay Scotland. The play park designed and installed by Timberplay Scotland is set amongst the most amazing woodland with huge trees which seem to go on forever. The natural wood structures by Timberplay blend in perfectly with their surroundings. It was a frosty morning, but after a few laps of the play park I don’t think any of the kids noticed the chill or me! A big thanks to the pupils of St.Patrick’s School Cumnock for being such great fun, I was exhausted watching you.
