North Croft Auchronie


North Croft Auchronie, Aberdeenshire

JAMstudio achieved consent for a replacement 4,000 sqft house on the site of an existing derelict cottage and steading. This unique interpretation of Scottish vernacular architecture incorporates the re-use of granite from the original buildings alongside sustainable technologies, including a biomass boiler and high performance insulation.

The project was completed two months ahead of schedule despite the works commencing in the middle of winter
The build incorporates a bespoke designed and locally fabricated glass, steel and timber helical staircase in the central atrium
A fully detailed three dimensional model of the structure of the building was created to assist with the steelwork fabrication
Finnforest Thermowood timber cladding was chosen for the vestibule and garage as the kiln dried product has a twenty five year life span
