ECA EVOLUTION HOUSE
Location: University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, Scotland
The Evolution House is the main administration and prime teaching facility for the ECA. The project aimed to transform a multi-tenant corporate space into a window into the creative world of the college.
Project challenges included extending the building’s ‘green design’, removal of the interior ‘corporate identity/feel’, and uniting the classical with the modern, 21st century cultural and progressive focus of the college.
Using light to further enhance and optimize the building’s inherent transparency, volumetric color was also used as a unifying element to strengthen the ECA working environment with student culture.
