We recently spoke with Bear Agushi from Agushi Developments and architect John Bornas of Workroom Architecture about their recent collaboration, the stunning Huntingtower house in Armadale. Huntingtower was designed and built as a home for developer Bear Agushi and his family and is a true labour of love.

The project features natural stone, timeless European Oak parquetry flooring, and rich and beautiful brass fixtures.Read More
