sciennes student housing

In the autumn of 2012, Bergmark Architects, leading a multi-disciplinary team, won a competitive bid to design and deliver  two extensions to student housing complexes in the centre of Edinburgh; at Sciennes and Robertson's Close.

The projects consist of forming student common rooms and wardens' offices  within internal courtyards, previously used for car parking.

Sciennes was the first to be completed, less than a year after the design process started and successfully delivered on programme, within the budget, and with a high standard of quality in finishes and detailing.
