The White House by WT Architecture is on Scotland’s Isle of Coll. The original stone house was built in the mid-1700s and was abandoned in the mid-1800s. When the current owners inherited the building, they found roofless ruins with lots of cracks but an intact basic structure. The architects advised the clients to preserve the ruins and build the living spaces around them. To the rear of the original building, new living and bedroom spaces stretch out generously into the landscape, with expanses of glazing to take in the stunning landscape and sea views. An H-shaped plan provides pockets of external shelter on the exposed site. The interiors are kept modern and lively, and the views become a part of the décor due to the extensive glazing.
