Oracle Offices Edinburgh – A2

This office building for Oracle picks up on the white modernism of Allan Murray Architects’ earlier Coalhill project in Edinburgh, and the G1 building, also at Edinburgh Park. It was designed simultaneously with the larger A1 which sits at the prow of the A Site, onto Gogar roundabout.

The Client was HQ but the building is now the offices for Oracle in Edinburgh.

A typical leitmotif of G1 and A2 is the glazing wrapped around corners. Influences here from American architects Steven Holl and Richard Meier, and of course from the simple white forms and black fenestration of the Bauhaus in Dessau in southeast Germany.
