‘Generation’ Bothy On Site – July ’14

Posted July 25th, 2014 by Architect with No Comments

We’re delighted to see the building of our artists-in-residence bothy go up in the grounds of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art this week. The result of a collaboration with The Bothy Project, the bothy is eventually to be dismantled and rebuilt in the North of Scotland in a more permanent form to provide live/work accommodation for visiting artists.  This temporary version is to serve as a multi-purpose pavilion  for the ‘Generation’ exhibition over the next few months.  As such we’ve treated its temporary cladding in a much lighter, ethereal form, exposing the finely crafted solid Douglas Fir structure.
