Built in 1800 as an agricultural retreat, this property in the Scottish countryside consists of three houses, and has adapted its original structure to modern times with materials from the ceramics firm.
Designed as a family home with three independent barns, Williamstone Farm Steadings (North Berwick, Scotland) perfectly represents the 19th century's architecture which shaped the British countryside by combining native materials (slate, clay or wood) with those brought by the Industrial Revolution (iron, glass, concrete and steel) through horizontal structures and opposing planes.
An architectural style that remains present in the three buildings in this complex (The Barn, The Bothy and The Byre) and which has been updated following the involvement of the LBA architecture studio using PORCELANOSA Group Premium collections.
To preserve the site's historic heritage, the architects have merged the original elements of the construction with eclectic décor that leaves its stone structure or pipes exposed. This is also the case with living rooms and bedrooms, where PAR-KER® ceramic parquet by PORCELANOSA is married with exposed brick walls, hardwood high tables, industrial style lamps or wicker chairs.
The blend of natural stone, concrete and wood imitation ceramic tiles (Marmol Carrara Blanco, Dover Acero and Madagascar Natural) that defines a large part of the rooms allows each room to be aligned with nature without disrupting it.
