10 - 15 Princes Street

The refurbishment and extension of a ‘C’ (Statutory) Listed Building in a highly sensitive position in the World Heritage Site, immediately adjacent to the ‘A’ listed Register House. Planning Consent was won for the addition of two extra storeys to accommodate a new hotel on the upper four floors, whilst the lower three floors are substantially reworked to accommodate high profile retailers. The site is pivotal in the regeneration of the East End of Princes Street and presented many challenges in modifying a complex structure with different portions dating from the 1820s, 1850s, 1920s, 1950s and 1990s.

Any adjustments and extensions to the building were carefully considered to ensure the aesthetics related closely to the existing building and historic detailing and rhythm. The development was completed in April 2014 and both retailers and hotel are trading successfully.
