University of Edinburgh architecture students embrace £3m design hub

The University of Edinburgh has furnished its architecture and landscape architecture students with a new design hub following conversion of a former police training school at Chambers Street.

Robertson and Collective Architecture carried out a £3.1m refurbishment of the four-storey space as part of a wider campus improvement programme, creating an accessible general teaching space in the process.

David Cairns, managing director of Robertson Central East, said: “This has been an extensive refurbishment and I have no doubt that the new teaching spaces will be of huge benefit to students and staff alike. We are extremely proud of the quality of the modern new facilities whilst retaining key features of the 1887 Grade C listed building.”

Mark Robinson, chief executive of public sector procurement specialists Scape, added: “The project will have lasting benefits beyond the build process, which promises to help provide our industry with the next generation of architects.”

The university recently refurbished the Edinburgh College of Art and Murchison House.
