2018 WhatHouse? Awards, Best Renovation, Gold - The Playfair at Donaldson's, Edinburgh

The Playfair at Donaldon's is a Category A listed building and it won the Gold award for Best Renovation at the prestigious WhatHouse? Awards 2018. The judges commented “Breathing new life into any building is challenging; when it is an Edinburgh icon built in the 1840s and designed in the style of an Elizabethan palace, it is daunting. This is an outstanding project: the ‘rescue’ task alone was some feat; the finished project sets a new benchmark for best renovation.”
