Corrie ChurchClient – Private Corrie Church, built in 1887 and overlooking Loch Torridon in the north-west Highlands, was recently converted into a family home and infinity swimming pool. This project combined the old and new in an outstanding location on the shore of Loch Torridon. The core of the project is formed from the remains of a former church building, this incorporates the main living spaces within a volume that recalls the open volume and diagonal roof structure of the original building and extensive glazing. Cdmm(uk) were appointed as Building services consultants on this exciting development. Our main brief was to ensure all services remained discreet within the building and sympathetic to the existing structure. The Leisure pool plant was housed within a below ground plant room to ensure best acoustic separation from the living space. One of our main concerns on this project which we identified following our thermal modelling exercise was the extent of glazing and the resultant heat gains to the space. Through careful design and co-ordination we developed a cooling system that was incorporated into the underfloor heating there by creating a cooled surface on the floor during times of high heat gain.
