The house kept the spirit of history.
Ruin Studio is the project of a private house area of 180 square meters in Scotland, UK, designed by architects Studio Lily Jencks and Nathanael Dorent Architecture.
The current structure was ingeniously built into the surviving stone ruins of an ancient rural house, providing residents with beautiful views stretching almost 50 miles North of the valley.
The building, erected in the XVIII century, has undergone during his life a variety of transformations, presenting to date, the palimpsest of the construction layers. In my project, architects decided to emphasize these historical layers, adding a number of contrapuncti materials and structures.
The first layer is the preserved stone walls, inside of which is installed with black waterproofing EPDM rubber sheath with a gable roof and in her curved tubular internal walls. These curved surfaces are made of blocks of polystyrene, installed in wooden frame construction, and covered with fiberglass.
Stressing over historical time, these three layers reflect the coexistence in the same building, different architectural languages: the natural erosion of ancient stone walls combined with simple gable roof and a free-form curved inner surfaces.
