Cuddymoss: Old and new held in perfect balance

At Ann Nisbet Studio's award-winning project in Ayrshire, even the rooflight specification is a symbiosis of contemporary and heritage

Cuddymoss is a modern home in north Ayrshire designed by Ann Nisbet Studio. It recently won the 2023 RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland award.

The concept for Cuddymoss was a ‘building within a ruin’ and it was delivered by designing the contemporary home within and around the stone and brick remains of a 200-year-old existing structure. A new timber-clad extension mirrors the form of the ruin.

The award-winning design features a combination of The Rooflight Co’s original Conservation Rooflights and its minimalist Neo Rooflights.

Sitting flush to the roof, the Conservation Rooflights’ signature fine steel framework is in keeping with the rural heritage of the building.

The contemporary sections feature the flush edge-to-edge glazing of the Neo, which has the look and feel of sheet glass.

Internally, the rooflights allow the property to capitalise on the natural light from the spectacular surrounding landscape, welcoming directional light into the bright white interiors.

The Rooflight Co is a market leader in innovative and elegant rooflight design. It has a deep understanding of the sympathetic and detailed design approaches required for award-winning projects.
