Edinburgh Park Speculative Offices
G3 for New Edinburgh Limited, Scotland
1999 Page & Park Architects
This three-storey speculative office development uses an L-shaped plan formed from two office blocks each with its own entrane/service core. The G3 blocks are designed by Page & Park to be multi-tenanted with flexible permutations of occupancy (although ultimately each block was let to a single tenant).
A unique public space is formed by the top-lit colonnade which links the two office cores and articulates the facade overlooking the car park. G3's white rendered colonnade walls are punched with window openings to contrast with the sinuous curtain walling to the front facades which are formed with variable depth fins that assist privacy and shading.
The G3 entrance cores are pushed out into the covered colonnade and contain the vertical circulation of lift and stairs, dramatically revealed behind glass walls. The glass lift cars are backed with strongly-coloured contrasting concrete walls emphasising the individuality of each office.
