Private Dwellinghouse, Angus

JFS Architects developed a brief with private clients for a bespoke contemporary house on the outskirts of Forfar with instruction to aspire to the highest levels of “design elegance and sophistication”.

The response is a 3 storey vision of glass, steel and render that fuses a “linear” bedroom wing to the West with a bold living drum to the East at the centre of a vast North facing site.

The building is approached from the South where a silhouette of robust shapes and forms combine to give an impression of the language for the entire house. In complete contrast the North is elevated in large sections of floor to ceiling glazing to embrace the spectacular and uninterrupted panoramic views towards Forfar and the mountains beyond.

This project presently remains “on the drawing board”, but has met with a very positive response from the local authority Planning Department in our pre-application discussions with them.
