High Sunderland, the 1957 modernist icon designed by Peter Wormesley for Bernat and Margaret Klein, required sensitive and complex restoration after weather and fire damage.
Loader Monteith and their clients saw the accident as a positive opportunity to restore and enhance the woodland retreat in the Scottish Borders to its original Wormesley vision, with new, invisible sustainable upgrades.
Loader Monteith has set a high standard for the impending future of modernist restoration work across the world. Their work celebrates and preserves High Sunderland and its rich history, so it can be enjoyed for many generations to come.
This project has been longlisted in the residential rebirth project category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
