Edinburgh charity plan lochside cancer retreat
July 17 2014
Ripple Retreat has been designed by Kettle Collective to provide space for teenage cancer sufferers and their families.
Inspired by the reflective qualities of its lochside setting the three bedroom home is defined by a feature wave form roof which dips and rolls in tandem with the rugged terrain.
Crafted from zinc, glass and oak the property lies within 10 minutes’ drive of the picturesque town of Callander on the eastern edge of the national park and comes complete with its own pier and fishing rights.
Charity head Lynne McNicoll wrote on her blog: “Tony and his wonderful architect, Chris Barr, are a joy to work with and incredibly generous too – getting us to this stage has cost us only the National Park fee for the planning application. These are very busy architects and we know that and appreciate almost beyond words what they have done for us. Today Tony gave me the little model of the Retreat and it now sits proudly on my desk.”
The charity is close to raising the £650k build cost for the build and is currently seeking donations to cover eventual running costs.
