Charles Henshaw have completed two major buildings in the new Exchange Place, including this six storey office development situated in the prime location of Edinburgh’s Central Business District. The curtain wall package was carried out to a fast track programme with a strong emphasis on logistical planning due to the project location and space restriction on site.
The form and use of traditional materials within a contemporary framework allows the building to respond to both the tenement scale of traditional Edinburgh and the varied architecture of the commercial quarter.
