John Honeyman & Keppie carried out unspecified but extensive additions and alterations to 'Bellevue', the North Berwick home of Arthur Rickards, his wife, three young children and five staff. 1

Authorship: Panelling at Bellevue was included on a list of Mackintosh's works compiled in the 1930s by Ronald Harrison, an early student of his architecture who had access to the office records. It was also included on Harrison's list of a selection of drawings produced in the office during Mackintosh's time. Harrison evidently believed that Mackintosh contributed in some way to the design of the building, but no evidence has come to light to support this attribution.
