This incredible lodge is constructed out of granite, steel and glass, designed by leading American architect Moshe Safdie, sitting in a 57,000 acre estate in the Scottish Highlands. The project was years in the planning, an initial meeting with Moshe at The Metropolitan Hotel, London, on Christmas Eve and many years of travelling to and from Scotland on various modes of transport.
The design brief was to turn it into a comfortable family home, closely working along side the architect, contractors, project managers, landscape designer and estate team. Finishes were selected to juxtapose the architecture with the landscape.
The interiors were designed to turn the lodge into a comfortable family home. The rugs were made in Nepal and hand finished on site by a team of craftsman over a week long period. Bespoke items of furniture were designed in-house throughout to sit beside pieces including a 16th century tapestry of the Battle of Zama, a vast sculpture by Anish Kapoor peppered with twentieth century Scandinavian furniture designed by the likes of Josef Frank and Fritz Henningsen. This project was totally unique and sitting nestled by a loch up the 13 mile drive; a total escape from the world beyond.
