On this island of Coll off the coast of Scotland sits a new Modern home that sits within the ruins of a stone manor. The thing that intrigues me about this project is the large crack in the stone that has become sealed as a window for the courtyard of the home. It is not a window for viewing and not necessarily for light either, but it shows some of the history of the old stone manor. It could have just as easily been filled in with stone, but is instead the moment that shows the deterioration of the stone and structure. The modern addition is a nice compliment to the stone as it does not overpower the ruins and remains respectful to the original site.
