SECOND TIME LUCKY FOR GM+AD Gordon Murray + Alan Dunlop Architects (GM+AD) has been given the go-ahead - at the second attempt - for this artists' retreat in the grounds of Dunderave Castle, near Loch Fyne in Scotland. The practice's original competition-winning concept (pictured left), which was submitted for planning in late 2004, was rejected by Argyll and Bute Council planners, who felt the proposals were too modern. However, the architect came back with a reworked scheme for the headland site. This new studio and artists' residence will now incorporate the remains of an unfinished cottage and garage development, designed by Scotland's Arts & Crafts master Robert Lorimer.

Construction work on these buildings had been abandoned during the First World War. The £250,000 project for the castle's current owner - a keen art collector - is expected to start on site in the autumn.
