Scottish Galleries at the National Edinburgh, UK

Hoskins Architects was appointed by the National Galleries of Scotland in 2014, via a competitive tender process, to redevelop the Scottish Collection Gallery on The Mound, Edinburgh. The project has delivered a world-class gallery space below the Playfair designed National building, to display the large collection of Scottish works in the Scottish National Collection.

The project involved extensively reworking the somewhat cramped and gloomy 1978 Property Services Agency (PSA) designed offices and Scottish Collection gallery, as well as linking to the 2004 John Miller and Partners Weston link, and creating new circulation routes to the Grade A listed gallery above. The designs include forming a new façade onto Princes Street Gardens, and extensive landscaping to the gardens to enhance accessibility down to the now main, gardens entrance.
