Page\Park unveil revamp of Edinburgh University's George Square campus
July 28 2014
Completed in 1970 the property was designed by Robert Matthew, Johnston-Marshall and Partners and forms part of a complex of buildings that includes the David Hume Tower, the basement of which was remodelled and refurbished to provide a teaching cluster and study space.
This was achieved by improving internal circulation through introduction of a main stair and atrium space with rooflights drawing light sown into the centre of the building. Timber lining has also been introduced to reflect this ambient light to foster a library-like environment and link directly to offices located around the building’s edge.
Elsewhere an additional floor of accommodation has been created, allowing the formation of a new project room above an existing lecture theatre.
