Thistle St, Edinburgh
Thistle St is a quiet street within the Edinburgh world heritage site. Our plans are to convert an under-utilised, listed office building, previously a printing press, to provide high quality and low carbon apart hotel rooms. Glasgow-based architectural studio O'Donnell Brown has developed a proposal involving low impact structural changes, to bring this building back to life.
