Gleneagles Townhouse, Edinburgh

The conversion of a Category A listed, former bank building into a stylish hotel and private members club including restaurants, bars and wellness facilities. Gleneagles Townhouse is the culmination of a five year project to convert the former Bank of Scotland headquarters at 37-39 St Andrews Square into a hotel and private members club as part of an expansion of the Gleneagles Hotel brand.

As Architect and Lead Consultant, 3DReid worked closely with Gleneagles and Ennismore to not only preserve and restore these historic buildings but to secure a viable commercial offer which would ensure the long term success of the property and contribute positively to the area and to the city as a whole.

Our team was able to accommodate 33 generous guest bedrooms within the reconfigured buildings, including an all-day restaurant in the former Teller’s Hall, a glazed courtyard, member’s lounge, co-working spaces, a rooftop bar with private outdoor terrace and a basement gym and wellness suite. The incorporation of all of these spaces was critical to the Client’s aspirations for the property whilst ensuring minimal interference to the most highly significant historic features to ensure that the splendour and character of the original building was conserved and enhanced.
