In May 1998 we were commissioned by Chambers Developments Limited to convert the Grade B Listed Dental Hospital and School into residential units, offices and a two storey restaurant.
Working with the developer, the planners and Historic Scotland, a scheme was conceived which introduces a contemporary interior while respecting and enhancing the original building.
Construction began on the residential accommodation in the Spring of 1999 and the flats were ready for occupation in February 2000. The fit out of the office development was completed in June 2000, with work to create a restaurant space on the ground floor and basement levels being carried out subsequent to this.
