Cairngorms Summerhouse

Trombe were recommissioned by a past client to undertake the specialist design and installation of a freestanding garden room in the Scottish Highlands, north of Aviemore.

The site is beautiful, but exposed, and the structure was required to provide shelter from the elements. It is not heated and thermal performance is not critical. We were therefore able to use single glazing to give the effect of maximum transparency with light and elegant detailing.

The glass roof and wall panes are structurally bonded together and supported by laminated glass beams and fins anchored into the stone base. Each unit is ‘over-sized’ (larger than normal glass manufacturing dimensions), shaped, stepped and angled, and the production design was complex. Furthermore, the logistics of installation in a remote area required careful management.

In all, the project pushed Trombe’s design and installation capabilities to the boundaries, but it is a testament to the ability of structural glazing to withstand the high wind and snow loads.

The end result is a unique and sculptural sheltered space where the client can relax and appreciate the ever-changing landscape.
