Hopetoun House Edinburgh

By the 1760’s the Adam brothers, of whom the best known is Robert, were dominating the architecture of Britain. They specialized in a mix of classical styles. The effect of liberally mixing Roman marbled interiors with Greek, Egyptian, Indian and Chinese additions released architecture from the sober approaches of previous architects. The wealthy eagerly accepted the new fashionable style with a number of new houses being built and others being refurbished. One example of these was Hopetoun House that overlooks the large estuary of the Firth of Fourth outside Edinburgh. The bookend shows a detail from one of the wings, part of the Adam reshaping of this large country house.
