7N submits plans for 'loose fit' office on former McEwan's brewery site

  • Comment

7N Architects has submitted plans for a 20,000m² super-flexible office building at the heart of the regeneration of the former McEwan’s Brewery in Fountainbridge, west of Edinburgh city centre

The scheme is backed by the EDI Group, an arms-length company linked to the City of Edinburgh Council, and will sit within the wider £200 milion India Quay regeneration project, which the practice is also masterplanning.

According to 7N Architects, the block has been designed to ‘respond to the agile working demands of emerging entrepreneurial businesses in the city who are increasingly shifting away from the standard model of traditional corporate offices’.

The building features a hybrid ventilation system, allowing worker control over personal working environments and the ability to switch to natural ventilation.

Ewan Anderson, managing partner at 7N Architects said: ‘We set out to design a loose-fit building that would accommodate a diverse range of users who would enjoy the flexible space, the fresh air and daylight and the buzz of being in an exciting new quarter.

‘It is a big step away from the traditional office environment and we are excited about delivering a place that will help to attract and grow the young entrepreneurial businesses that Edinburgh is becoming very adept at cultivating.’
