Pisgah is a Ristol development of two large family homes near Dunblane. As a former sawmill, the site led to the concept of using wide boards of timber cladding for sections of the houses emerged. The stained boards are set next to back bedded Caithness Stone to give a dry stone walling effect. The use of zinc reflects the agricultural context of the site and the curved apex provides a contemporary interpretation of a traditional pitched roof. Extensive design development and testing was carried out to create the curved zinc ridge leading to a design that is both elegant and robust. The palette of materials and the form of the buildings anchors the development naturally into the site and surroundings whilst also being undoubtedly modern.
