This is the iconic Gleneagles estate’s first ever city outpost in St Andrew Square, Edinburgh. The new townhouse boasts 33 individually designed bedrooms, each one unique and designed with an appreciative nod to the heritage of the building. The building, originally home to the British Linen Company, later became the Bank of Scotland and in its new reincarnation features a number of bars and restaurants including a striking rooftop terrace.
The project involved the alteration, extension and refurbishment of two notable Category A Listed buildings of significant historic and architectural character within Edinburgh’s UNESCO World Heritage Site.
To compliment the history and luxury of this exclusive building, Em-B designed a door hardware scheme that matched hand-crafted furniture with modern, living finishes to bring the past and present together.
Working with all of the project stakeholders – from the interior design team to the M&E contractor – Em-B designed, supplied and installed an access control solution that integrates with the staff management system and offers superior security for the hotel’s guests.
