A seven storey block of flats and maisonettes with 100% parking embraced by a curved copper wall.

This new residential building, on an extremely awkward site, maximises the development potential of a desirable location with spectacular outlook to Arthurs Seat. The residential building’s form evokes this dramatic backdrop.
