The Masterplan proposals of a private estate on an island off the west coast of Scotland, comprise a major extension of a grade C listed country house and the refurbishment and a major extension of the existing farm/ stable quadrangle buildings, to accommodate the Sporting and Golf activities of the estate.
The buildings total in excess of 50,000 sq ft on this 5,000 hectare estate. The proposals aim to restore an important group of traditional buildings and put back into good use. The buildings on the estate contain elements of significant architectural quality and they are a physical record of the farming and sporting estate culture which existed on the island.
The architectural philosophy or intention behind the proposals is that those qualities of the existing buildings will be celebrated. The Architecture of the proposed building is informed by the time honoured tradition of Scottish Vernacular with its unique character.
