Devil's in the detail

A few weeks ago I was asked to photograph the architects at Morgan McDonnell who are responsible for the award winning architecture that has rejuvenated Advocates Close here in Edinburgh. I had a great afternoon not only working with Guy and Brian, but having full access to document the space they have created.

Not so long ago this was a forgettable patch on the edge of Edinburgh's tourist mecca, the Royal Mile. Now it is a suave hangout for hairy hipsters and dapper dames. It also has some lovely hotel apartments that make great use of the original features and great re-use of the old materials that needed to be replaced (beams became tables, that kind of thing...). This is a union of new and old and has brought new life in to the space. Not only is there a lot more pedestrian traffic but the cocktails in the Devil's Advocate are well worth the climb up / down the stairs. You can admire the architecture as you compose yourself before heading in...
