Scottish National Gallery Edinburgh

Hoskins Architects were appointed by the National Galleries of Scotland in 2014, via a competitive tender process, to redevelop the new Scottish Collection Gallery on The Mound, Edinburgh. This appointment runs from feasibility to completion. The project is to provide a world-class gallery space below the Playfair designed National Gallery building, to display the large collection of Scottish works in the Scottish National Collection.

The project involves extensively reworking the 1978 PSA designed 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 gardens entrance.
