Donaldson’s College

DonaldsonsStudio Bof have spent the past year working on producing an Heritage Impact Evaluation Strategy for the proposed housing at Donaldson’s College in the heart of Edinburgh. The existing A listed Playfair building is being sensitively converted into 117 units by Richard Murphy Architects for developers City and Country. They are also the architects for Cala’s new build crescent to the rear of this iconic Edinburgh building. The report investigated the impact of proposals for the whole site in relation to previously approved designs, as well as the degree of impact to the existing heritage. Planning and Listed Building Consent applications were lodged in August 2015 and are currently being processed – a decision is anticipated by mid November.
