PROJECT BRIEF & LOCATION
The luxury Boclair House Hotel at Glasgow is the latest incarnation for one of East Dunbartonshire’s listed buildings. Its rich and opulent interior creates a magical escape for weddings, weekends and events.
The historic Boclair House has been transformed from a warren of offices into a gracious boutique hotel, venue and restaurant, while the magnificent grounds in front of the house have been retained and developed into a setting for weddings.
Interior design and architectural company Space ID have returned the building to its former grandeur while shaping it for its new purpose. As host to weddings, conferences, meetings and events, it has full catering and bar facilities and a dozen luxury residential suites. Rooms have been stripped back to the original brick and stone shell before being overlaid with
glamorous new fit-out.
Smoked herringbone flooring and engineered oak planks designed by Havwoods are used throughout the hotel, in both the public areas and private suites. Dark and light timbers allow for the wide variety of room designs and characters, and the patterned floor is a distinctive feature in the entry hall, Arran honeymoon suite, and several reception rooms.
The original, rather dark Tudor Revival look is all but gone. In its place, Space ID have crafted a more eclectic and celebratory design aesthetic, creating an opulent and memorable experience for hotel and wedding guests.
