Powderhall Stables refurbishment gets underway
June 21 2021
Collective Architecture has commenced refurbishment of the B-listed Powderhall Stables in Broughton, Edinburgh, to bring the 1890s landmark back into use as a studio and co-working space for small business.
Led by the City of Edinburgh Council the work will turn the main building into twin function rooms complete with catering facilities while a stabling yard is to be transformed into an outdoor events space for street markets and art installations.
Emma Fairhurst, lead conservation accredited architect on the project, said: "We're very excited to be restoring and regenerating the Powderhall Stables and working with an ambitious client – The City of Edinburgh Council – to introduce a creative hub to Powderhall. The Stables is a beautiful building, full of character and interest and everyone is looking forward to seeing it reinvigorated, full of new life and activity."
As part of a broader regeneration of the former Powderhall Waste Transfer Station the stables sill stand as a lynchpin for over 200 homes in addition to an early learning and childcare centre and a novel intergenerational facility.
Scheduled to complete early next year the project team includes Currie & Brown, David Narro Associates, AECOM, and RSP Consulting Engineers.
The refurbishment has been made possible by a £1.4m investment by the Regeneration Capital Grant Fund.
