Replacement of a pre-fabricated concrete clad Doran bungalow with four split levels of new accommodation fitted inside the original building envelope. The client's memories of family holidays on Iona are to be preserved through sensitive reuse of the bungalow form and materials.

This discrete approach to increasing the living accommodation is made possible by rooflights. The former attic space is to be converted into bedrooms by adding a central stair and and new openings in the roof. Velux windows flood the stairwell with natural light and provide views across the sea to Mull.
