Fern Cottage, Nethy Bridge

This project revitalised a neglected Victorian cottage in the Cairngorms. An existing two-storey extension was demolished and replaced with a new extension containing living, kitchen and dining spaces. The origami-like zinc roof pitches and folds in multiple directions, rising and falling to mirror level changes and help differentiate internal spaces. The main engineering challenges were to support the complex folded roof and to cantilever the roof structure over the full-height glazed corner.
