Art-world superstars Iwan and Manuela Wirth saw the poetry in a run-down hotel nestled in the depths of the Scottish Highlands, not far from Balmoral Castle, and utterly transformed it. Every inch of The Fife Arms's interior has been imaginatively and intelligently considered in the context of place with each room telling the story of a person, event or theme connected to its Braemar location. This book reveals this luxurious hotel in intricate detail, from the bespoke wallpaper and soft furnishings to the remarkable art on its walls.
Hauser & Wirth was founded in 1992 in Zurich by Iwan Wirth, Manuela Wirth and Ursula Hauser and has expanded to include outposts in London, New York, Somerset, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Gstaad, St. Moritz and Menorca. The Fife Arms is their first hotel, and like all of the Wirths' ventures is embedded in the heritage and traditions of its local culture.
