Lilybank House Refurbishment

The project consisted of a careful restoration and upgrading of Lilybank House, a Grade A Listed mansion house significantly redesigned by Alexander Greek Thomson in the latter of the last century. This project comprised of staff offices and a departmental library created within the original formal living room of this historic building.

During the refurbishment woks on site, some original colour stencilled ‘Greek’ Thomson designs were uncovered which resulted in an inspection team from Historic Scotland visiting the site to investigate and record the underlying design on the existing walls which we then proposed should be preserves in part within the refurbished teaching accommodation to the approval and satisfaction of Historic Scotland.
