Throughout, Denizen Works founder Murray Kerr explained how his studio came to develop “the language of the building” from a blank canvas by following sun and wind patterns.
“We started to talk about, well, what if the house is almost a kind of found solid and then gets eroded by the weather,” he said.
“Which is why the west elevation that faces the prevailing winds is much more kind of broken down and the rest of the house.”
The Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award is held annually by RIAS to celebrate the works of Scottish architects. This year’s winner will be announced on 30 November and receive a £10,000 cash prize.
Two university buildings – Campus Central at the University of Stirling and Laidlaw Music Centre at the University of St Andrews – are also vying for the title of Scotland’s best building for 2023.
The final project on the four-strong shortlist is a house that incorporates a ruin, which was longlisted in the rural house category of the Dezeen Awards 2023.
