The University of Edinburgh has a strategic aim of increasing the provision of student accommodation within their portfolio. This will allow them to meet their current guarantee in support of an increasing student population and be able in due course to extend that guarantee further.
A sensitive approach to this historic environment has resulted in a design that is sympathetic to the Southside area. The high quality finishes and approach to landscaping will create a fit for purpose student residence that will enhance the area.
The design of both the refurbishment and new build elements demonstrates a sensitive approach to student living, directly adjacent to the University Campus.
