RHWL Architects

The RBS headquarters building lead design was by the London-based architecture office of RHWL Architects. Originally titled Renton Howard Wood Associates this British architecture practice had offices in London, Berlin and Qatar.

This UK architectural office was created by Andrew Renton, Peter Howard and Humphrey Wood following the establishment of Andrew Renton & Associates in 1961. Gerald Levin became a Name Partner in 1973, and from that date this architect firm was often known as ‘RHWL’.

RHWL Architects, Arts Team and RHWL Interiors eventually became part of Renton Howard Wood Levin LLP, a limited liability partnership. RHWL and Arts Team were acquired by the huge international design office of Aedas in January 2015.

Royal Bank of Scotland Background

RBS Scotland

The RBS HQ building design at Gogarburn was by RHWL and Michael Laird Architects (MLA). MLA are based at Forres Street in the New Town, just north of Queen Street.

This Scottish design practice is one of the largest in the capital city. The architects firm is known for high-quality design work, notably offices and residential properties.

Bank of Scotland Headquarters The Mound, central Edinburgh

The new RBS Group World Headquarters is situated on the site of the former Gogarburn Hospital, which lies within the Edinburgh Green Belt. AECOM’s role as landscape masterplanners involved carrying out the landscape and visual impact assessment for the Environmental Impact Assessment and developing the external setting, which consists of extensive use of natural stone for entrances/drop-offs, and themed contemporary courtyards.

Between Edinburgh and the city airport, the sensitive, 65 hectare green-belt site is adjacent to three Areas of Great Landscape Value and within the Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes. Because it was anticipated that the new building could affect the local hydrology, the Gogarburn campus landscape design had to incorporate solutions for dealing with the possible changes. The need to minimise the scheme’s visual and physical impact has guided the design of the buildings, infrastructure and landscape.
