PROJECT SUMMARY

As part of the £200m development of Edinburgh’s historic old town, a new Accor Adagio Aparthotel was commissioned. Overlooking the characterful Royal Mile, the exterior facade of the new building had to seamlessly integrate old with new.

THE BUILT SOLUTION

The remarkable hotel takes a traditional material and transcends into a contemporary sandstone facade that wraps around the building. The striking colouration of Stanton Moor sandstone features a buff base with brown and gold variation , matching closely with the materials used in the historic city.

STONE DESCRIPTION

A Permian sandstone from the Locharbriggs Quarry. A new red sandstone with technical properties ideal for rainscreen cladding, ashlar and masonry products.
