Taigh a Chnuic, Ullapool
"A Serene lochside treehouse in Scotland from your wildest dreams...every detail of the open-plan treehouse has been meticulously considered. For a small space it packs alot...Underfloor heating, wi-fi and a hotel standard loo and shower mean we are very much living in comfort ."
Natasha Radmehr. The Times 16/10/21
The 'Tree Hoose ' at Taigh a Chnuic was designed to be airlifted to an inaccessible, steep woodland site overlooking Loch Broom in the Highlands of Scotland.
The prefabricated structure is composed of five individual sections, each one engineered to weigh less than 1 tonne. Air lifted on to the platform , each of the sections were then assembled to form an open plan space complete with self contained accommodation.
Each of the four activity spaces- the built in double bed, kitchen, shower room , sitting room - are arranged around the central space with wood burner. Two central roof lights and large picture windows to each space frame the views of the woodland, the loch and mountains beyond . A small balcony of the sitting room
The Nordpan walls and timber finishes provide a warm backdrop for a classical monochrome interior in black and grey finishes . Origin doors entrance and the other to a balcony
Fixtures and fittings include a convertible window seat/ daybed ; built in double bed; kitchen unit with black Formica ColorCore worktop , black sink and tap, hob and oven , and under counter fridge.
The fully fitted shower room has floor to ceiling window with floating console in black Formica ColorCore; Arezzo curved basin and high rise tap tap in black; Swift micro venetian blinds in Flint grey; and back to wall WC.
Light fittings include a pair of Anglepoise Original 1227 hanging lights in grey over the bed; Nordlux Strap Lights in black to the central space; and Nordlux Sway 11 pendant lights to the kitchen unit . Recessed LEDs are positioned throughout.
