Brae House Student Residences

Manson Architects and Planners

The building accommodates 423 student residents, each with an en-suite bedroom in a selection of studio and HMO apartments. A finalist in two separate national award categories it also houses a dedicated management facility, common room and roof top terrace. Formed as a perimeter block and central courtyard the proposal takes strong influence from the traditional and historic urban development of Edinburgh’s Old and New Towns. The use of traditional blonde sandstone, crisp white render

and tall slender window openings creates a contemporary but respectful building.
