The new office is located in a stylish new top-level suite in the recently refurbished Infirmary Street Baths building, now a mixed-used development housing leading tapestry company, Dovecot Studios, and a mix of exhibition, residential and commercial spaces.

Previously based in Leith for the last 18 years, Holmes relocated to its new office space at the end of January. Holmes’ Edinburgh partner Neil Maxwell said:

“This is a very positive development for the practice. We are now in the very heart of the city and look forward to strengthening our position in the wider Scottish marketplace and adding to our diverse portfolio of projects.

Our ongoing collaborative relationship with Kathryn Findlay of Ushida Findlay Architects, which is now in its second year, continues with both practices relocating to these new premises.

We are keen to continue to engage with other creative professionals, universities & colleges and the wider property development sector in central Edinburgh and contribute positively to the city’s future economic and cultural success.”

Holmes’ Edinburgh office is currently engaged on a range of projects including schools, a training college, and custodial projects in Edinburgh and Polmont. A new apartment hotel for Fraser Property Developments on St Giles Street in the city’s Old Town, for which Holmes’ has provided architectural and interior design services, is due for completion in spring 2009.

Holmes has offices in Glasgow in Edinburgh, and works with clients across all sectors, including residential, commercial, education, industrial, and custodial. A £500 million+ workload includes major residential regeneration projects; city centre and business park commercial developments, major custodial works and an extensive school building program.

The Infirmary Street Baths building was refurbished by Malcolm Fraser Architects, opening in late 2008. The original building was one of several public swimming pools built in Victorian Edinburgh to combat cholera.
