Doors Open Day 2017
Doors Open Day 2017

We put on an exhibition of the history of our building, within the context of the 250th Anniversary of the New Town and a range of our current projects. Some wonderful nuggets of social history came up in conversations such as a BBC journalist reminiscing about interviewing the former Hearts owner, Wallace Mercer, on the mezzanine in the 1980’s and a woman from University of Edinburgh who told us about when the space was a preparatory college for the first women to attend the University in the 1870’s

 

The feedback on our design work was encouragingly positive with a lot of interest in our local projects, particularly India Quay at Fountainbridge where many were asking “when will it be happening ?”.
