A true mix of uses is integrated into a historic city centre. A once undesirable street is activated by a seven-storey apartment block, student housing, a four-star apart-hotel of studios, garden flats and town houses and four commercial units. Set around public and semi-private courtyards, the development reconnects Grassmarket with the city’s West End. The architectural language, scale and muted palette blends into the Old Town’s fabric: sandstone, grey cladding and render; pitched slate roofs and dormers. The stepped facade bridges the gap  between street scale and a large adjacent office building.
