Scottish Poetry Library Extension

The £380k redevelopment of Edinburgh’s Scottish Poetry Library Building, built by fit-out contractor Morris & Spottiswood, has been completed.

The client says this about the extension:
“Our building was designed for what we were doing in the 1990s, and we need to plan for the 2020s, and even for what we can’t imagine doing yet. The original building had unused space for development, and several bespoke elements: an obsolete garage as there was no longer a call for a travelling library; an unused upper terrace, which had become unsafe; and a forestair meant to be used as an external reading and listening space, but rarely used for this purpose. Space for Sound was our campaign to refurbish the SPL, to provide a flexible and imaginative base from which to deliver our mission to bring people and poetry together.”
