A developer client procured a large converted office to the first floor of a commercial terrace in the heart of Edinburgh’s financial district. Following the provision of numerous sketch design options, development analysis led to the conclusion that conversion to a residential flatted scheme would provide the greatest return on investment.

Following further design iterations, the office was subdivided into 4 residential units ranging from 1 to 3 bed in size. The design was quickly granted planning consent, and building warrant, following compliance with regulations to attenuate acoustic and vibration from the busy street outside, as well as large plant to the rear of the building and the commercial floors below, and residential units above.

Fully rendered 3D images were developed as a design tool, and used for effective marketing of the flats which were sold in advance of their completion.
