ANTA Edinburgh

24 September 2017

The flagship store of Scottish handmade stoneware, furniture and fashion retailer, ANTA, is placed in the New Town’s prominent George Street location. The former Church of Scotland bookshop was refurbished in 2011 using natural materials informed by the firm’s preservation of the Scottish vernacular evident throughout the ANTA collection. The showroom exemplifies ANTA's contemporary take on building traditional artisan design, using colours inspired by the Scottish landscape and sourcing local craftsmanship to create a modern aesthetic grounded by a strong sense of place. The building itself was designed by Lachlan Stewart, an Edinburgh College of Art graduate and now conservation architect who is the co-founder of ANTA along with his wife, Annie Stewart. Both the Crocket’s Land house (see entry) and flagship store are an exemplification of how a design partnership with a strong appreciation and understanding of the Scottish vernacular can be creatively combined to build harmony between history, design, interiors, architecture and the local landscape.
