Collective Architecture - Edinburgh Office Launch Party
Collective Architecture celebrated the launch of their new Edinburgh office on Thursday the 26th of May, with a party for our clients, collaborators, colleagues and friends at the Collective Gallery on Calton Hill. The evening’s festivities included street food, music and conversation, all set against the Edinburgh’s spectacular skyline.
The opening of the Edinburgh office, located on Grindlay Street, was set up in response to a growing portfolio of work on the Scotland’s East Coast, and goes hand in hand with Collective Architecture’s expansion across the UK. The office has new projects and clients in the North of England and London, in addition to their established position within the Scottish Market. Collective Architecture has also recently been selected as one of three architects for the City of Edinburgh Council Framework.
Collective Architecture is currently working with The Collective Gallery, to bring their plans for the redevelopment of their Calton Hill location to fruition. The location of the party was therefore a great way to celebrate this relationship, as well as Collective Architecture’s arrival in Edinburgh.
The Edinburgh office, which will operate as a complimentary studio to the Glasgow office, is based at the foot of Edinburgh Castle. With a growing number of staff, the East Coast office is currently working on projects in Leith, Dundee, Galashiels and Edinburgh.
Director Jude Barber said ‘We are delighted that Collective Architecture continues to evolve and grow with our new studio in Edinburgh. It’s a real privilege to celebrate with friends and collaborators in such an inspiring, important setting’ The launch party was a great success, with the City Dome proving to be a warm and welcoming shelter from the sudden change in the sunny weather. The spectacular views that Calton Hill affords, were cloaked in an atmospheric, low lying mist that appeared onthe night. However the hot dogs and music kept everyone in good spirits!
