David Hassell Link Modern Blackhouse

In this project I intend to explore how architecture has changed to place focus and value upon energy and energy use, and to look at where it might be going. Using various precedents I hope to show how many aspects from vernacular architecture, whilst they may be considered quite basic by modern standards, are still incredibly relevant. I am presenting a design for a modern Scottish Blackhouse, showcasing the relevance of many aspects of the original design, and how it can be adapted with modern technology to provide a successful intervention.
