Scottish Design Awards Winner – Charlotte Square ‘Re-Use of a Listed Building’.
Located on Edinburgh’s prestigious Charlotte Square, these former National Trust for Scotland offices have been refurbished and redeveloped to form prime commercial accommodation. The architectural integrity of the 6 A-listed townhouses was restored by comprehensive repair, replacement and reinstatement of authentic room proportions. A new 4 storey office with underground parking on Hope Street Lane is linked to the 3 central townhouses by a lightweight glass sided & ETFE covered courtyard.
Astute provided fire engineering services in developing a fire strategy for an interesting and equally challenging historic building development.
