George IV Bridge AparthotelProject Info
We have secured Planning and Listed Building Consent to convert a former language school into an aparthotel, on George IV Bridge, Edinburgh.
The Category B Listed property is at first floor level above the Bridge on one side, but 5 storeys above the Cowgate on the other, with amazing westerly views towards Edinburgh Castle.
The buildings was completed in 1868, with the first floor of the building noted as being used as ‘warehousing’; possibly providing storage to the shops and cafes on George IV Bridge below. The original building was subdivided into bays, each separated by thick masonry walls. These bays were further subdivided in the 1970’s creating a series of small cellular spaces.
Our approach is to remove these partitions and restore the proportions of the original bays, with each room having a pair of tall windows looking to the Bridge on one side and west to the Castle on the other. A full refurbishment of the property is required to provide a series of seven, high-quality studio apartments.
