FaulknerBrowns Architects won a competition by Edinburgh University to design a new Sports Science Department linked to the old 1969 Sports Centre which was aimed at improving the appearance of the existing building. Our solution wrapped the new building around the existing building, creating an efficient functional plan and completely concealing the old building with new frontages onto Holyrood Road.

The project combines new sports science teaching and research facility with an 8-court sports hall, 25m swimming pool, laboratories, seminar rooms, teaching accommodation, academic and administrative offices on a sensitive site on Holyrood Road which lies on the edge of the World Heritage site and near to the Scottish Parliament building.
