Students settle into former Edinburgh cinema
July 19 201686 bedroom student build comprising a mix of studio and cluster flats on the site of an A-listed cinema in Edinburgh’s south side.
The Buccleuch property sees the less significant rear of the cinema replaced by a five storey infill intended to sit in harmony with adjoining tenements with a contemporary palette of white render and polished concrete panels referencing the white Hathenware façade of a retained entrance on Clerk Street.
Both the auditorium and foyer of the art deco cinema have been retained for re-use as a cultural venue with key features such as a sky ceiling preserved.
