Fountainbridge Masterplanner appointment

7N Architects, in collaboration with Michael Laird Architects, are delighted to have been selected by EDI to develop a master plan for Edinburgh’s Fountainbridge area, following a competitive selection process.

The team have been tasked to create a vision of a modern neighbourhood with the capacity to house a new Boroughmuir High School and offer some expansion potential to the city’s business district. The City of Edinburgh Council’s property company, EDI will use the plans and recommendations by the masterplanning team to shape the overall development of the area.

City Design Leader, Riccardo Marini, said:

“This team was selected because they exuded the confidence, understanding and skill to help the city reinterpret the master planning exercises of the past and deliver a viable and wonderful place. I have no doubt that Fountain Quay will become a welcome and complimentary addition to the city’s list of vibrant neighbourhoods and an important destination in its own right.”
