Carlowrie Castle

Restoration   |   Architectural Context   |   Quick return on Investment

A grand restoration with stunning results

Carlowrie Castle is steeped in history as it sits within 35 acres of stunning countryside, only 10 minutes from Scotland’s Capital city. Current owner, Andrew Marshall, contacted us back in 2011 with what was a specialised restoration project based on the original existing Orangery. With capacity to accommodate either very intimate weddings in the Drawing Room, Library Bar or Dining Room or indeed larger weddings in an external marquee, Andrew recognised a demand for an all year round fixed alternative that could increase capacity and reduce operational costs. 

The original Orangery wasn’t fit for purpose but the elegance of its design, historical context and clear business opportunity inspired Andrew to restore the structure like for like. Keen to retain the elegance and grandeur of the Orangery, we worked in partnership with architects and contractors to design and construct what has become an iconic wedding and events venue at Carlowrie Castle.
Specialised restoration project on existing Orangery
Replica design with modern requirements
Historical and architectural context at the core
Increased capacity for weddings and events
Quick return on investment
Added value to property and business
It was essential that the restoration was given to leading glass and timber structure specialists, who would be able to strike the right balance between, intelligent design, quality materials, workmanship and installation, as well as a clear understanding and insight into the architectural context of the build. The team grasped this immediately and the results are truly stunning.

The Orangery now seats up to 120 guests and is located towards the side of the castle, with panoramic views that extend over the manicured gardens and woodland walks. With the average wedding comprising between 75 to 120 guests, it has opened the business up to larger wedding parties. Add in the option to host a range of other events such as charity fundraisers, dinners and celebrations, this has been a wise investment, both in terms of business growth and the overall value of the property.
Mozolowski & Murray Director, Virginia Murray said:

“This was a particularly rewarding project with truly impressive results. We worked seamlessly with our client’s architect and base contractors with our specialised team producing the highest standards of workmanship, to ensure the best possible outcome for Andrew, his clients and his business.

“It is always a delight to see our work being enjoyed post completion, but it is fantastic to know that Andrew’s investment has already paid for itself. We know what is takes to grow a successful business which is why we get so much satisfaction out of clients choosing us to help grow their business, as well as significantly increasing the value of their property.

“We look forward to building our business profile by helping more clients achieve their goals and wish Andrew and his team continued success for decades to come”
