Richard Murphy OBE, The Architect


Set within 18 acres of private grounds, the outdoor space at Donaldson’s is inspired by the rural ideal, exuding to this day the expansive, open setting of this 1800’s estate, and all set within the backdrop of the historic Playfair building.

The New Town in a New Light

These buildings still stand proud today, and in homage to their passion for symmetry and scale, CALA's The Crescent marks the beginning of a new chapter for this iconic design classic in Edinburgh's New Town.
