The project brief called for provision of a new secure entrance; replacement of the existing defective glass barrel vault roof with a low maintenance alternative whilst creating a dramatic atrium space appropriate for a B-listed Building located on the Royal Mile.
Externally a curved aluminium standing seam roof encloses the existing atrium.
Internally the specialist curved ceiling boards have been installed to improve the acoustic properties of the space whilst expressing the existing structure.
In addition, glazed gables have been introduced to reflect the existing structural language and maximise the use of natural light.
