New Apartments, Strathblane

Designed to appear as a single house , this new build project  in Strathblane, Stirlingshire is actually two generous new apartments. Planned within the garden of the client’s former house, ‘Letterfield’ provided the opportunity for the client to self-build a new highly insulated/low energy home for downsizing.

Each of the new apartments has three bedrooms with generous open plan kitchen living rooms. The upper apartment has a top lit hall and feature oak trusses in the living room which opens onto a terrace.

The  new apartments are built using high quality materials and finishes throughout of natural slate roofing, sandstone walling, copper cladding and solid natural oak internally. Kitchens are by Bulthaup at Cameron Interior and bathrooms by Victor Paris. The apartments are highly insulated, have full underfloor heating throughout – linked to solar thermal panels and have mechanical ventilation with heat recovery.

Our client says:

“Network Five listened to our needs and dealt proactively and flexibly with the challenges of our project. Although we were ‘self-builders’ Network Five provided us with a high quality of design and technical support – particularly when things became difficult with some of our suppliers they helped us to get the project back on track.
We really enjoy living in the house, it is pretty well everything we hoped for and it has been admired by all our visitors.” NC
