Design and build revives Gothic gem

24th November 2017 in Latest Projects
Recently completed 1-2 St Andrew Square in Edinburgh demonstrates Sharkey’s ability to work alongside other industry specialists to produce cutting-edge modern work space for large corporate clients.

The project, for Standard Life Investments, centres around one of the city’s most historic buildings, designed in the Gothic Revival style by acclaimed English architects Alfred Waterhouse and Son in 1892 and located on the New Town’s most iconic square.    

 The design and build project, based on Comprehensive Design Architect’s innovative concept, was challenging due to its location on a congested city centre site that is at the heart of the Edinburgh’s own revival as a 21st century capital.   Over 50 tonnes of steel were brought into the building through upper floor windows and features of the completed 16,220 sq ft transformation, with a project value of £2.7 million, include a ‘pillow’ roof above the atrium, intelligent LED lighting and a pared-back aesthetic providing a stark contrast to the decorative Victorian exterior.
