The Artist Bothy has been designed to dimensions ergonomically suitable for a flexible space of this nature. Whilst the internal dimensions are key, due consideration has been given to the exterior. This is to not only create appropriate proportions and aesthetic from a design perspective, but that also comply with commonly found statutory guidelines.
|Internal:||5m x 2.45m|
|External:||5.5m x 3m x 3.85m|
We have specified materials that are seen in various guises in vernacular architecture in Scotland. These materials are not only functional, durable, and sustainable, but are attractive, suitable for purpose and can be homogenous in many different contexts, be it urban or rural. The bothy has a fully insulated envelope and is double glazed.

The Bothy has provision for water and power supply and is fully wired with lighting and socket points. A chimney is fitted to enable straightforward installation of a wood-burning stove.
Water, waste and electrical connections will need to be implemented on site. Connections and any commissioning should be made by a qualified professional. Greywater drainage must also be considered on a site-by-site basis. The Bothy has integral surface water drainage with concealed downpipes. These can be routed to a collection point, soakaway, or to existing drainage, depending on the services and ground conditions at the proposed site.
