As one of only a few remaining original buildings on Princes Street, No. 132 has seen many changes over the course of its life. From its townhouse origins, through to conversion into a tea room with a view, a purveyor of fine fur-based goods, a cinema of occasional questionable repute and a record shop that once played host to the Sex Pistols, it’s fair to say that it is a property that has many tales to tell.
The latest chapter in the story, is its rebirth as a unique characterful modern office space, set across 3 floors. A substantial transformation of the Category B listed building has seen the addition of a new glass extension to the rear, vertical circulation throughout and installation of high quality building services. The conversion is as much about the present and future, as the past. In stripping away its many layers, remnants of its previous uses have been preserved and exposed, offering luminous spaces, with expansive views over Princes Street Gardens and Edinburgh Castle.
