City Architecture Office complete 7 years in the making arts centre
City Architecture Office has completed the final phase of a seven year project to convert a former Territorial Army hall in Leith into an arts centre.

In what is one of the practices highest profile projects to date the architects refashioned 11,000sq/ft of space into workspaces, rehearsal rooms, café and spaces for art, music and performance.

Over the years arts trust Out of the Blue have commissioned a series of improvements to the former Drill Hall, including the formation of internal courtyard spaces.

Flexibility is the watchword for all spaces within the building with non load bearing walls within the lattice beamed main hall allowing future space requirements to be accommodated as expansion demands.

Energy efficient the building is super insulated with heating and ventilation provided by an air source and heat exchange system.
Out of the Blue describe their new space as 'magnificent'
