House With Almost Half of the External Walls Made of Glass – Duncan House

The Duncan House by Gareth Hoskins Architects is set within a listed walled garden in Fife, Scotland. It could be called “Glass house” because almost half of the external walls are made of glass. The plan of the house is defined by two thick, white rendered masonry walls that contrast with the grey whinstone of the existing garden walls. These walls emphasise connections between old and new, inside and outside. The walls are thick in plan in order to conceal cupboards, wardrobes, service runs, window seats and fireplaces, so that the main spaces are clean and uncluttered, with their main focus on the garden. The interior is done in simple minimalist style in order to highlight the beauties of the outdoors.
