The White House - Isle of Coll
By William Tunnell (WT Architecture).
See Poster for more info & RSVP 

Completed in 2010 this beautifully sensitive scheme was constructed around the ruins of ‘The White House’ Isle of Coll, Argyll, where Boswell and Johnston visited during their tour of the Hebrides in 1773. Whilst the ruin has been consolidated and parts are incorporated within the new building, the separation between historic and contemporary is overt with the house sitting comfortably within this extraordinarily beautiful landscape.
