Formation of one of Edinburgh’s premier destinations within a listed building at the heart of the city.

Following the delivery of a complex basement nightclub for the same client, we were engaged to work with them, and their design team, in the formation of a prestigious boutique hotel within the confines of a listed Georgian townhouse on George Street, Edinburgh.

To facilitate the installation of 33 bedrooms, together with the associated restaurants, bars and the ‘Lulu’ nightclub in the basement area, we first removed two concrete columns from the core of the building, installing temporary support for the five storey structure, and inserted a custom steel frame to allow the installation of desired lifts. We delivered the fit-out of all areas, the installation of over £2m of M&E and designed, manufactured and installed numerous items of bespoke furniture.
