St Margaret’s House Tenants Interviews, The University of Edinburgh

My name is Coll and I’m 4th year Architecture student at the University of Edinburgh and am currently researching for my dissertation which explores secondary use of buildings. St Margaret’s House is an incredible example of utilising a space and creating a thriving economy out of a forgotten building.

The strength, to me, lies in its huge diversity of tenants. I hope to document and understand the nature of the spaces that you all have and your stories and experiences at St Margaret’s House. To do this, I would love to have a chat with you about your experience here and document the space you are currently in, both through a few photographs and, if possible, a 3D LIDAR scan of the room – I’m doing this to get a cross section of the community here in as rich a way as possible. This is by no means prescriptive and I am happy to work with you to best get the information I’m looking for, I also understand that time is precious and so I will make sure to be as quick as possible in chatting and getting the photos/scans, around 30-45 minutes tops!

If you are interested in being involved then please get in touch, my contact details are:
