The Curve ,Caerlaverock ,
Dumfries & Galloway
This elegantly curved cabin is completely off-grid and was designed for Caerlaverock Estate. Sited on farmland in south west Scotland, it overlooks the Solway Firth, and is positioned to take advantage of the panoramic views across the Solway to Criffel summit and along the River Nith, towards Dumfries. The cabin's outer curved wall wraps around the building and provides shelter from the northerly and easterly winds whilst the sunny southwest facing inner wall is punctuated with glazing to take in the views and patio doors accessing the private space to the rear .
A copper coloured entrance porch recessed into the timber clad wall , leads to the kitchen/dining space Turn right into the living room, and left, via a a small lobby with separate WC, into a suite of private spaces with a sliding timber wall between the lobby and bathroom, and a second between the bathroom and double bedroom. A discreet space with fold down childrens' bunk beds creates additional family accommodation.
With the sliding walls open, the interior becomes entirely open plan, the curving form of the building creating a sense of privacy at each end of the space. With one or both walls closed the space becomes a series of private but interconnecting spaces.
Interior fixtures follow the gentle curve of the cool spruce timber walls, and a pale lacquered oak engineered floor runs the length of the space, with a neutral porcelain tiles creating the setting for the theatrical freestanding Mode Ellis bath and shower.
At the opposite end, the kitchen unit in cool shades of grey SolidCore Formica houses a gas hob, oven , and 12v fridge. In a small lounge , the wood burner nestles between floor to ceiling windows
Coordinating pendant and wall lights in white with timber detail light the interior, and a series of six Kaylen Pendant lights by Zipcode hang at intervals parallel to a recessed dual curtain track ; the lights and sheer curtains follow the curve of the space accentuating its elegant form.
