The Grade II-listed Principal Edinburgh George St. hotel was built in 1775 as a home for the city’s most affluent citizens.
In a huge multi-million pound refurbishment project, the hotel has transformed both its interior and exterior (but retained its Scottish charm).
The project’s goal was to create a sense of restored grandeur. Part of that meant accenting the façade’s architectural elements. Fittings had to be discreet, lighting pollution kept to a minimum and energy savings maximised.
