Client: VITA Student
Architect: Michael Laird Architects
This redevelopment of the once famous Palais de Danse at 125a Fountainbridge will be a unique, mixed use development providing high quality student residences & associated hub facilities with retail, commercial & leisure uses at ground floor levels facing onto Fountainbridge and the Union Canal.
The Fountainbridge scheme consists of 250 beds, as well as an impressive 5,000 sq. ft. communal area, which includes a large social hub, movie room, gym, private dining and dedicated study areas.
Astute provided fire engineering and strategy input in order to achieve single stair core arrangements to the towers and maximise the internal space.
