Located in a crofting community on the Isle of Skye, this one-bed micro home prototype was developed as a lightweight, thermally efficient, movable house. It emulates the form and proportions of the rural  vernacular – long and narrow with an asymmetrical roof. The mobile home concept arose because the ground couldn’t take traditional foundations. Clad in black standing seam zinc and larch, it has three flowing spaces open to the roof apex, divided by a storage wall. Large areas of glazing open to the south and west, offering solar gain and stunning views.
