Client: Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh
Designer: Edward Cullinan Architects
Bespoke joinery: Elmwood
When Elmwood was appointed to manufacture and fit out key elements of the new John Hope Gateway Building at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, our 4-axis CNC router faced its toughest challenge to date – an intricate sequence of acoustic ceiling panels.
The CNC router coped ably, determining the correct size and position of hundreds of irregular-shaped holes with perfect precision, enabling the acoustic panels with integrated lighting to be suspended from stainless steel wires.
Also included in the brief was the manufacture and installation of a bespoke reception desk made from solid veneer lumber imported from America through Germany, along with a bar area with the bar tops constructed from solid fumed oak sourced from Germany.
