Cliff House: Life on the Edge
Life on the edge: Cliff House fits seamlessly into its environment amid the rugged Scottish landscape. The house is enthroned atop the cliffs of Galtrigill on the Isle of Skye. It offers a panoramic view of the surrounding scenery.
Dualchas Architects have designed a building whose closed-off façade on one side offers privacy and shelter from the weather. In contrast, extensive glazing on the other side opens things up by filling the house with daylight, merging the boundaries between interior and exterior and providing an unobstructed view of Loch Dunvegan – an inlet on the western coast of the Isle of Skye.
