The architecturally striking W Edinburgh, which features a golden façade crafted from a winding steel ribbon, has won our new Project of the Week title.

W Hotels’ latest scheme has certainly got people talking thanks to its unique design concept.

A modern landmark

Currently under construction and planned for completion in late 2022, W Edinburgh will bring bold architecture and a vibrant lifestyle offering to the Scottish capital. Behind a façade featuring a winding steel ribbon – reflecting the city’s festival spirit – this 12-storey structure will be the centrepiece of Nuveen Real Estate’s Edinburgh St James scheme.

Part of a 1.7 million sq ft development, incorporating retail, leisure and entertainment facilities along with residential apartments, this W hotel aims to help redefine the city’s hospitality landscape. Accordingly, it’ll fuse the brand’s signature amenities with modern design and W Happenings, highlighting what’s new in design, fashion and music.

The striking architecture is being overseen by Jestico + Whiles and Allan Murray Architects, with Jestico + Whiles also designing the hotel’s interiors.

Vibrant lifestyle amenities

The new W hotel will accommodate visitors across 244 stylish guestrooms, including 20 suites and one Extreme Wow Suite, which is the brand’s take on a presidential suite. While staying here, guests will benefit from the brand’s signature Whatever / Whenever service philosophy.

A real highlight of this property will be its rooftop bar and outdoor terrace, pairing exciting cocktails and cuisine with 360-degree views over the historic city. Among the other noteworthy amenities planned are the W Lounge (a reimagining of the traditional hotel lobby), a signature restaurant, a Fit workout facility and an Away spa, with special functions hosted in 2,450 sq ft of modern event space.
