LDN has worked with Highland Buildings Preservation Trust for ten years on the Sail Loft and former Commercial Hotel in Stornoway rare, surviving remnants of an era when fishing and the herring industry was the economic foundation of the islands. These are extremely significant buildings, whose classical simplicity alludes to a time of great civic pride and prosperity.
Finding a genuinely sustainable new use, which is compatible with these buildings was a major challenge, and the eventual solution involved conversion to residential units for sale on the open market on a revolving fund basis.
