Holmes Miller complete Edinburgh Premier Inn
August 31 2016conversion of a 1970’s exposed concrete office block.
Situated within the New Town conservation area the project saw the existing structure stripped back to the frame and remodelled to accommodate 127 bedrooms.
In a statement the practice said: “The existing massing allows for a quiet, respectful relationship to the existing buildings on York Place, while taking advantage of dramatic views to the north over the Firth of Forth.
“Holmes Miller worked closely with City of Edinburgh Council to produce a design sympathetic to the sensitive and historic context, whilst being contemporary and refined. The development creates the missing link to the streetscape created by the 1970’s office building.
!Clad in stone, zinc and full height glazing, the building is enhanced by a restrained approach to detailing and proportion. A subtle variation at ground floor provides a sense of scale, activating the streetscape."
