Sealoch House is a prefab private residence built for a couple who wanted a cozy new home with beautiful views of a bay area in Scotland. It boasts an eco-friendly heat exchange system, solar panels, wood flooring and three spacious bedrooms. The house is the first private residence designed by Sussex-based design studio, Boutique Modern, who specialize in modular holiday homes and garden rooms.
Sealoch House was created from four modular components developed using super thermally insulated panels, pre-wired and enabled for heating, light and sound, with solar energy plates and an eco-friendly heat exchange system. The pods were transported to the site and then homed in configuration on embedded pins, before being clad in sustainable timber and zinc. The entire process took less than five months.
The airy open living space has areas for cooking and dining, reading and relaxing. Large doors open onto a timber raised deck overlooking Loch Broom. The living room has a wood burner and the dining area can accommodate six people and features a custom made timber table and windows that overlook the loch.
