As the first part of a long term project, the provision of new entrance, reception and shop for the Museum of Edinburgh was enabled by forming a new AV exhibition and link to Acheson House. Independent offices for the Edinburgh World Heritage Trust were incorporated into Acheson House at the same time, creating a new cultural centre on the Canongate. This was achieved within the framework of the largest surviving collection of late 16th century urban buildings. Artistic touches such as beautiful lettering by artist Susie Leiper were incorporated into the design, and the revitalised exterior is designed to reflect the rich and varied history of the buildings and former vibrancy of the Canongate Burgh.
