Situated in 600 acres of farmland and rugged natural vistas, the setting for this project can only be described as majestic. The brief was bold and combined the renovation of an existing edifice with the addition of new buildings to create a superlative accommodation offering. The stunning rural location, close to the Scottish border, necessitated an exceptionally sympathetic approach to design. The pre-existing stone structure was to be extended with a series of new buildings in a “wrap-around” style to create a courtyard feel. The existing building had a barn style appearance and it was important that the new buildings, whilst contemporary, were sympathetic to and blended with their surroundings.
