Holmwood Entrance Hall Wall Restoration
The Foundation is continuing its support of Holmwood House, famed Scottish architect Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson’s finest surviving domestic design, by consolidating and restoring Thomson’s original polychrome wall decoration in the Entrance Hall. This area is in urgent need of attention; some of the original design has been carefully revealed, but the paint surface is severely flaking. Consolidation will prevent further loss of the design and will be followed by reversible restoration work to improve the overall appearance of the Hall. The restorations are part of Scotland’s “Year of Innovation, Architecture, and Design”.
