Key contacts


Ryden HQ, Edinburgh

  • We used our in-house team when Ryden moved headquarters from traditional cellular space in a townhouse to a modern, open plan 6,329 sq ft office in Edinburgh’s financial district.
  • From the outset of the project they committed to involving the whole office using employee consultation to develop the brief, plan the layout and choose the furniture.
  • The relocation to new space has proved transformation for the way we work together and the careful design and prominent ground floor location allows the firm to present a brand image reflective of Ryden’s standing within the industry.

Baillie Gifford, Edinburgh

  • Baillie Gifford, an investment management company, wanted to upgrade their head office in Edunburgh.
  • We provided a full interior design service and contract administration of the project through to completion.
  • At each stage we produced visualisations of the design options and discussed progress.
  • The open plan office space and meeting rooms were efficient and flexible enough to cater for the needs of the company’s expanding team.
