Resurrecting the ruins of an old Scottish farmhouse from the 1700s is one of the more ambitious home building projects you’ll find. Not only was the structure rebuilt, but it was also converted into a futuristic solar home. The minimalistic home features a unique, curvy interior that helps bring in natural light to meet passive house standards.

Nathanael Dorent Architecture collaborated with Lily Jencks Studio to create the new home in Dumfries, Scotland. Both architecture firms used what was left of the farmhouse stone wall ruins and added a black EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) rubber layer inside of it. Essentially, it’s an extremely durable rubber that’s used frequently in low-slope buildings around the world.
