Young Street Lane North Office Building

“The site for these new office spaces is located within the grid of secondary streets that forms the North side of Edinburgh’s original New Town and consists of 3 derelict mews houses and a Victorian lawyers office, which is located a full storey below the level of the mews houses.

The project creates simple, naturally lit, open plan office spaces within the existing buildings and does this by rationalising the roofscape within a series of new zinc enclosures.

In the mews building the new roof is used to raise the existing eaves and gives the upper office floors a more generous ceiling height. In the lawyers office the new roof is used to bring improved levels of daylight and natural ventilation deep into the space, using high-level clerestorey glazing.

The different levels in the existing buildings are then linked together by a third glazed structure containing a new steel and timber staircase. A small urban garden, accessed from the lower building completes the project.”
