Fountain Park, Edinburgh

Fountain Park is a dedicated leisure destination recently acquired by Land Securities. The original design created a foyer/atrium space along the internal length of the facade providing access to a number of units. Two of these principle units have been vacant for a number of years with little interest in re-letting.

The proposals remove this (essentially redundant) foyer space, by reconfiguring and extending the existing 2 vacant units into 6 new (sub-divided) units. These units now manifest themselves on the main facade giving them essential street presence and the ability to inhabit the space externally beneath the existing facade.

A sensitive lighting and screening concept rejuvenates this principle elevation on a modest budget.
