Skip to Details


This project involved the refurbishment of student accommodation including new kitchens, en-suite bathrooms, decoration and flooring throughout. Our client rents the rooms during holiday periods for Edinburgh Festival visitors and it was crucial to handover a proportion of the rooms by August. We continued with the refurbishment programme, handing over rooms in a phased manner.

During the refurbishment we also delivered the new build of the Hub accommodation. Essentially the Hub is a common area for students and residents to meet, socialise and relax out-with their own rooms. The structure was a steel frame and glazed curtain walling on all sides to allow for maximum light. A timber clad canopy was incorporated into the roof finishes to complete the building envelope and added an interesting design feature to this new space. Internally the Hub was fitted out with bespoke seating pods, kitchen, bathroom and new soft furnishings.
