How to add value to a traditional West End home

Aberdeen Science Centre


Every now and then as designers we are asked to apply our skills in a creative way. The chance to work with Grant at his team at Aberdeen Science centre was too good to turn down. Collaborating with Papillion Landscapes after securing grant funding we have transformed the outside space allowing the Children at the science centre to take their discovery “Al Fresco” when the sun shines.

Aberdeen Science Centre


A place for children of all ages to continue their scientific discovery in the heart of the city. The enclosed and safe environment allows childern to enjoy textures, materials and performances in a space that was previously utilised. Access from the reception area and also for less able users brings a further asset to one of Aberdeen's most popular destinations for children.

"By putting our end user at the core of the design, Tinto managed to develop a concept that would allow the children who already enjoy the science centre an enhanced continuation in the new sensory garden. Coordination of contractors and refining the details as it was delivered has created a unique space in the city to be enjoyed by all" Liz Hodge-Aberdeen Science Centre
