Form Design Consultants was appointed by UBS Asset Management to provide a variety of design services at One & Two Lochrin Square, Edinburgh, which included architectural and interior design, space analysis, visualisation and statutory approvals.
One Lochrin Square provides 62,000ft² of Grade A office space over five floors. Form was asked to develop a contemporary reception area that improved the street presence of the building. This was achieved by the application of a restrained palette of quality materials, detailed to provide clean lines, and a crisp lighting scheme. In addition, an external glazed canopy and illuminated signage strategy was designed, further enhanced with modern landscaping to the Fountainbridge entrance area.
The ground floor has been developed to attract the growing Tech sector within Edinburgh, with the CAT A fit out of the floor taking on a more urban aesthetic, with the typical suspended ceiling removed to expose high level services, Space plans and computer generated visuals were created to help market the ground floor suite, which required Form to develop a Concept Design for the floor. On the other floors, Form prepared space plans that illustrate how other tenants could be accommodated within the building.
In the basement, the car park has been enhanced and a shower block and cycle store created.
At Two Lochrin Square, Form developed designs for the reception area and the external public realm. The designs were developed to provide a continuity between the two office blocks, whilst retaining each building’s independent status. This was achieved with the material palette, landscaping and signage packages.
