British Standard on C4's Restoration Man!

We tuned into Channel 4 last night to watch the first of a two part series of Restoration Man with the ever engaging George Clark. The owners of HMS Owl, the abandoned concrete, World War II control tower at Fearn airfield, built on the shores of Moray Firth in Scotland, bought the incredible building in 2012 and have begun restoration works recently.

Excitedly, they have looked to British Standard Cupboards for the design of their kitchen, utility and cloakroom! Last night's show documented the substantial structural renovation that has taken place over the last few months. We will be following the project closely and really can't wait to see Justin and Charlotte's dramatic vision come to life! Watch this space!
