Highland House is a contemporary, new-build holiday home in the Highlands of Scotland, designed with Tektonika Architects. The interior design roots the building in its setting, while also offering protection from it - this is a place of extreme weather and beautiful vistas of a loch.

Design details reflect the home’s use as a place to escape, unwind and be at one with nature. Minimalism meets cosiness in a material palette that includes chunky concrete with exposed aggregate, warm Douglas fir wood, handmade zelliges and flattish-toned encaustic tiles, and textiles that are comforting to touch. Everything is built on a palette of green, yellow, navy, pink and brown (the sludgy versions), allowing the rooms to bleed into the land they overlook.
