What are your biggest personal influences? “In terms of design, Frank Lloyd Wright and Alvar Aalto, I am particularly interested in the drawings of Wright and the materiality of Aalto.”
The Well is formed of seven individual towers, all of which are linked by a central retail spine.
A major mixed-use regeneration of the St James Centre is located at the east end of James Craig’s New Town. The retail element of the scheme totals 70,000 sqm, with the addition of a luxury hotel, up to 143 new homes, 30 restaurants and a multi-screen cinema
