Torrin VIP Accommodation

2012

Client brief
To design and fit out an old house on the Balvenie site to provide VIP accommodation, the interior and restoration should reflect the Balvenie brand; exclusive malt that still uses the five traditional crafts.

Paul Hodgkiss designs solution
To use Elm trees already felled from the site. To restore and use the existing stone of the building. Designed the full interior, retaining control of all details from the stone walls to door handles, this was to make sure the design, use of natural materials and quality traditional crafts was consistent throughout Subtle brand message through stone and wood carving, reclaimed materials sitting comfortably with the new. Natural materials, contemporary design. We created a five bedroom VIP home for Balvenie to accommodate its clients, a bar, dining room, lounge, kitchen and billiards room with a sculpted snug. A teak WC with platinum taps, bedrooms with en suits of such a tactile and luxurious nature. With a ground-breaking stair design at its heart.
