Historic Aberdeenshire House in Aberdeen, Scotland by Kebony

A distinctive Edwardian home in north Aberdeenshire was recently given a new lease of life with the addition of an extension inspired by contemporary minimal design. Juxtaposed against the traditional hard wearing granite of the original building, the extension features Kebony cladding which introduces an element of Scandinavian design aesthetic as well as bringing with it all the benefits of resilience and durability that its technology allows. Appearing to ‘float’ in front of a stainless steel mesh, the timberwork gives the building a sense of lightness, contrasting with the solid granite of the main part of the house.
The extension opens up the rear of the house to provide an open plan functional living space where the internal décor is reflected by the exterior, using modern materials and large floor to ceiling windows, so that the lines between external and internal become blurred.
