Nestled in Hawick in the Scottish Borders, Little Landisfarne is a minimal modernist’s dream. The clients wanted their house to be as sustainable as possible and additionally employed social sustainability by engaging local Hawick contractors and materials sourced within Scotland wherever possible.
Russwood’s Scotlarch® cladding – a rusty ash brown colour when installed – will weather naturally over time to a silvery grey helping the house blend into the local landscape. Fixed in a simple board-on-board layout, this is a proven cost effective cladding solution.
Indoors, the open floor plan and restrained palette contrasts and complements the owner’s colourful collection of books and art. Oak flooring finishes its classic interior with 190mm wide unfinished engineered boards supplied by Russwood. These were then hand-oiled onsite using an OSMO hardwax oil (raw colour).
"We spent a great deal of time investigating larch cladding and wooden flooring suppliers and were immediately impressed with the superb quality and diversity of the products available from Russwood,” says client Brian Robertson. “Perhaps just as importantly, the team were wonderful to deal with; the depth of their knowledge, helpfulness, professionalism and friendliness helped make the project possible.”
