A very different project in the Inner Hebrides aims to integrate contemporary design with the natural landscape. Environmental considerations are important; the garden is sustainable using native planting and local materials. Wild grassy terraces wrap around the house and there are trees such as hawthorn, blackthorn and rowan. Much of the island is a Site of Special Scientific Interest so it is important that any plants introduced are natives already found on the island. Biodiversity is also important and the garden encourages a wide range of wildlife from buzzards and barn owls to hares and voles.

The site is extremely rocky; stone and rock from the site is used to fill gabions for benches and steps. The contrasting textures of rock and weathered wood echo elements of the landscape. Chippings from the local quarry are used on the paths between the large rocks from the site.
