The sandstone cladding on the principal facade (facing east onto George IV Bridge) is punctuated by random fenestration with slightly angled timber cladding panels. The Lawnmarket facade (facing north) is divided vertically to reflect typical feu pattern of the Royal Mile, again with timber panels, but here they are face the street square on, but step out as the building rises. The facade to Victoria Street (facing south & southwest) is curvaceous, with sandstone vertical mullions – like the ones designed by Benson + Forsyth at the Museum of Scotland just down the road.
