Robert Arthur Lawson, Salmond’s business partner, was one of New Zealand’s pre-eminent 19th Century architects. It has been said that he did more than many other architect to shape the face of New Zealand’s Victorian cities, especially Dunedin. He is the architect of over 40 churches in Otago. The Lawson Suite on the ground floor, looks into the garden and commands the same panoramic views as the Salmond Suite. All facilities are as for the Salmond including generously proportioned ensuite.
