Ocean Point One is the first phase in a 200,000 square feet office development that will be split across two eight storey buildings. The £9.6million office sits close the Ocean Terminal shopping centre and has been designed to relate to the geometries set out in the Leith master plan.
The two blocks are designed sit at right angles to each other. Phase One is orientated north-south and phase two will run east-west. In the triangular space between the blocks and the waterfront Farrells propose a public square opening on to the sea wall. The entrance to both blocks will be at the same corner of the square. The architects looked carefully at the treatment of the elevations; the edges of the building are solid and are sculpted to provide a contrast with the sweeping glazed facades. The mullions of the curtain walling and the glass itself has been carefully detailed and colour co-ordinate to animate the façade.
