Refurbishment of old Edinburgh Royal Infirmary into a successful new community.
Refurb Residential Conversion
In a city famed for its period properties, Quartermile’s Victorian conversion apartments offer something entirely new. Each building has been designed to take full advantage of the vast floor to ceiling heights of the old wards. All benefit from tall elegant sash windows, which flood the rooms with light and bring the views inside.
Designed by world-renowned architect Foster + Partners, these soaring glass buildings offer contemporary living in apartments flooded with natural light. Nestled comfortably among the Victorian conversions, many boast impressive views of the Meadows or the Old Town from within their state-of-the-art interiors.
