Ever felt like you wanted to escape it all and retire to the countryside; like somewhere really remote where you could wake up to rolling hills? Well this modernized 'Hen House' could be your dream rural architectural inspiration. The Hen House is a holiday home located on just off the Scottish coast on Fiscavaig on the Isle of Skye. The natural materials and earthy, understated tones of the building mean it blends seamlessly into the barren landscape. The last thing you would want is to pollute a beautiful landscape with a flashy, overly modernized design.

The house itself is raised on small beams to make it more balanced in the hilly terrains. The award winning English architecture firm also ensured that the positioning of the house would make the best possible use of the glorious views. This example of rural architecture could be useful for anyone planning to build a country getaway.
