Scottish Actor Gerard Butler’s Unique House
Gerard James Butler is a Scottish actor who has appeared on film, stage, and television. A trained lawyer, Butler turned to acting in the mid-1990s with small roles in productions such as Mrs. Brown.
Thirteen-foot-tall mahogany doors with a knocker that could summon the dead. A ceiling fresco depicting the rape of Ganymede. Plaster walls chipped and mottled with age, massive columns supporting limestone lions, crystal chandeliers casting spidery shadows. Medieval castle? Ancestral manor house? Try a two-story loft in the heart of New York’s ultra-trendy Chelsea district. The doors alone are remarkable enough to stop the most jaded Manhattanite in his tracks.
Actor Gerard Butler worked with architect Alexander Gorlin and film designer Elvis Restaino on his 3,300-square-foot loft in Manhattan. We recreated things that came into Gerard’s life from his travels in Europe or even from an old coffee shop in New York Restaino says.
I wanted something elegant and gorgeous and at the same time rather masculine and raw.
