Balloch Retreat: North Facade

The retreat's facade makes constant references to Balloch culture and history, to better embed the structure in the fabric of the town's community. Sitting on the River Leven, the retreat's porthole windows coupled with the long span of the building suggest a resemblance to the town's historical steam paddlers.
