A nine-ft-high cupola crowns the vast studio space of this Edinburgh property – a dance hall from the 1850s that’s likely hosted many Burns Night celebrations over the centuries.
The Hill Street live/work space is set across three levels and stretches to 3,180 sq ft at the centre of Edinburgh City Centre, a short walk from Edinburgh Castle and Waverley train station.
South-facing sash windows, an ornate glass ceiling and period mouldings recall the building’s past, while reclaimed gymnasium floors run underfoot. Currently an open-plan space, it has pivoting walls that can be rearranged to divide the space as needed.
A light-filled one-bedroom apartment occupies the first floor of the Scottish property while the lower-ground floor is rented out as a commercial office space. Both have timber floorboards, exposed beams and bespoke joinery such as library shelving and storage.
