The Studio LK team, whilst with Patience and Highmore, led and managed the scope of work that included design, planning, building permits, tender, site supervision and interior design of public spaces.
The Rutland building is a reconstructed block within the World Heritage Site in the Edinburgh New Town consisting of six storeys (basement, ground plus 4 storeys). The main entrance faces on to Rutland Square, one of the major public squares in the New Town.
The building includes retail within the basement and the ground floors, with four floors of office space above, and an atrium stretching from ground floor to the roof serving the office space.
The development involved the demolition of the existing building on the site while retaining the existing façade to Shandwick Place.
