Fettes College in Edinburgh
The new Spens Building at Fettes College in Edinburgh successfully integrates modern architecture within a historic setting. The £18m project faced several challenges nestled between the school’s A-listed buildings and it was essential that the palette of materials was sympathetic in order to achieve approval and planning consent from Historic Environment Scotland and the local authority.
Lang+Fulton supplied the external walkway which provides a link between the new classroom block, Art studios and Music school and existing buildings. AntiVertigo panels were chosen for the flooring – a non-transparent elevated bridge with self-draining and anti-slip properties.
