Projects / Malmaison, Edinburgh


S Harrison Developments Ltd

Project Description

Malmaison at St Andrew Square in Edinburgh’s City Centre involves the sensitive conversion of a Grade A listed building into a new boutique hotel, comprising 72 guestrooms with a series of public spaces including a restaurant, bar and coffee lounge and private dining facilities.

The building occupies two Grade A listed classic Georgian town houses, the oldest in Edinburgh’s New Town originally constructed in 1775 by architect John Young and fronting onto St Andrew Square.

3DReid’s design creates new public spaces at street level, with bedroom accommodation provided across the upper floors and two sensitive new-build extensions to the rear of the existing building.

A sensitive new build extension within the existing courtyard provides additional front of house space and key operational links while ensuring that the form and character of the existing space is retained. An existing 1970’s elevation to the rear of the property will be reconfigured and re-clad to enhance the setting of both Buchan House and adjacent Portrait Gallery Square in Edinburgh’s city centre.

3DReid worked collaboratively with developer S Harrison Developments and Malmaison Hotel on the development.
