Lomondmuir Farmhouse

A contemporary farmhouse in rural Kinross-shire, Scotland has achieved the perfect balance of aesthetics and energy.

The Project

Situated between the natural beauty of Loch Leven and the Lomond Hills, Lomondmuir Farmhouse was designed by architect Scott Strachan and constructed by THCL as a "turn-key" building contract. Owners, Mr and Mrs Orr, originally planned to build a timber-kit structure. However, after discussing their requirements for an energy-efficient home which had the potential to be expanded in the future all within their budget, THCL specified the Kingspan TEK Building System.

The one and a half storey home currently features three bedrooms at ground level and can be expanded in the future to include an 80 m2 first floor. Due to the excellent spanning capabilities of the Kingspan TEK Building Sytem panels, the first floor features vaulted ceilings, creating a unique additional living space.

This excellent fabric performance of the Kingspan TEK Structural Insulated Panels has contributed to the building receiving the gold label for sustainability under Technical Handbook Section 7 (sustainability) of the Scottish Building Standards. The house was also a finalist in the Best SIPs House in the Built-It Awards 2016.
 
The clients brief was to build an energy efficient home within their budget but also to allow scope for expansion in the future.

We suggested that the house was built using the Kingspan TEK Building System for two key reasons. Firstly, it takes less time to build due to the fact the panels are pre-cut to the project's specification. Additionally, the excellent insulation performance of the System will offer significant future cost savings on energy bills.
