Steading, Bute

Linear layout

Glecknabae is a C-shaped steading on the north-west of Bute, first converted in the early 90s and updated by Dualchas Architects. A clean, linear layout connects the various elements of the property, with large glazed openings making the most of the incredible views towards Arran.

Showstopper studio

Upstairs, Russwood European Oak flooring in Chalk has been used to stunning effect in a showstopper bedroom studio, meticulously installed by Ronald Robertson Joinery. Situated in the barn loft, the low ceiling height was turned from design challenge into design statement by continuing the flooring up onto the walls. The natural texture and light shade of the oak creates a warm and intimate effect, with boards precisely fitted for a clean but powerful design statement.

Scandi inspired

The Scandi-inspired palette of brushed oak, stainless steel, off-white walls and slate continue throughout the barn, creating a cosy but contemporary feel. The more traditional features of the steading are preserved and enhanced, with Russwood Unfinished European Oak laid on the ceiling and stained on-site to a warm, natural finish.
