Named after the hotel’s original telephone number, Auchterarder 70 is steeped in history. Challenged with creating an interior that evoked a sense of nostalgia for the clubhouse, our design harks back to the 1920s and the era of Abe Mitchell, when Gleneagles and its golf heritage were born.
Reclaimed oak parquet block flooring in a basket-weave pattern, fluted oak wall panelling, bespoke crackle-glazed midnight blue wall tiling and decorative gloss-painted timber arched panelling with inset mirrors reflecting external views of the golf course, all echo the architectural detailing of the era.
The banquette design and painted arched panelling draws inspiration from Gleneagles train station and its carriage seating. Careful attention to small detail – from the contrasting saddle stitching of the banquette seating to the handcrafted aged brass work; from the turn-of the-19th Century glazed entrance lobby to the period telephone hanging on the wall – adds substance to the interior. Painstakingly sourced loose furniture creates character, charm and warmth complementing Auchterarder 70’s impression of establishment and permanency.
