2. Gallery House, Gleneagles
This interesting contemporary house, designed by award winning Belfast practice Hall McKnight Architects, will certainly appeal to golf lovers - it's located on the edge of the Queen's golf course at Gleneagles Hotel (host to the 2014 Ryder Cup).
- The house is constructed as a light, rendered cluster of forms designed to establish a relationship with its surroundings.
- The ground floor is characterised by a series of intimate spaces and dark, charcoal coloured brickwork which is intended to ground the house to the landscape.
- The upper level has a lighter, open and more lofty feel and incorporates a series of open terraces from which you can enjoy the views out over the golf course towards distant hills.
