The Queen Street Quarter is a mixed-used development that has community and people at the heart of the design. Located in the heart of Aberdeen city centre, the design creates new walking routes to connect nearby arts and culture venues. It also recreates the façade along the queen street that once existed in the 1800s. Behind the street is a series of courtyards, formed by the existing facades of Marischal College and the Lemon Tree.

The ground floor is defined by the concrete colonnade and consists of commercial units, cafes, and restaurants for the public. The upper levels are residential with a variety of 1, 2, 3, and 4 bed apartments that are accessed via the external concrete deck. Between the concrete slabs, timber walls are pushed in and out to create a series of entrances, and balconies. And communal spaces. The three cores extend upwards to create towers relating to the surrounding skyline that contain a variety of amenities including a gym, cinema room, co-working spaces, and access to rooftop gardens.
