Cullinan wins planning for Edinburgh botanic gardens scheme - image

Edward Cullinan Architects has won detailed planning permission for a new gateway building to the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh.

The new centre will house exhibitions and a studio space for demonstrations and exploration into the world of plants.

To be built from timber, glass and stone, the gateway will attempt to cut its impact on the environment with a range of renewable-energy systems, including biomass-fuelled boilers, a rainwater-recovery system, and a roof-mounted wind turbine.

Construction is scheduled to begin early in 2007.
