Torispardon - A beautiful new build in a stunning location
Torispardon is a new build private house in the Central Highlands, located on a hillside with panoramic views of the Cairngorm Mountains and the Spey Valley.
It is formed of three elements. The Cottage which accommodates guests and can be ‘shut off’ when not required. The timber Link which houses the main entrance, utility and kitchen, and the Steading which has the master suite and living areas. Frameless glass elements are employed to visually separate the three buildings, whilst enabling them to link with each other.
The project is sensitive to its origins and context. The traditional vernacular of the Cottage and Steading echo the footprint, materiality and massing of the original buildings located on the site. The contemporary timber clad Link is agricultural in form, and is deliberately subservient to the adjacent buildings. The Steading is sunk partially in the ground, cutting into the landscape that surrounds it.
