Scottish Storytelling Centre
The Scottish Storytelling Centre is a vibrant arts venue with a seasonal programme of live storytelling, theatre, music, exhibitions, workshops, family events, and festivals. The building incorporates the medieval architecture of John Knox House with the contemporary design of the Scottish Storytelling Centre to create a unique and multi-functional venue, which also has a café and a bookshop. The project was particularly difficult due to the extensive underpinning & structural work and the sites challenging location at the narrowest point on Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile.
