Minto House

This grand old house in the Scottish borders was a 16th c. tower encased by William Adam, largely enveloped by Archibald Elliott, and enlarged by Robert Lorimer. It included formal garden terraces also designed by Robert Lorimar, set in idyllic parkland. It had been stayed in by Queen Victoria. It had now fallen into dilapidation and was to be moved, stone by stone, to Japan where it was to be reconstructed and fully restored.

We undertook detailed historical research, located original drawings by the architect Robert Lorimer, and rescued samples of original interior finishes and mouldings.

Every stone in the entire external façade was mapped using photogrammetric survey techniques ready for numbering, dismantling and packaging for transport.
