Scottish Ambulance Headquarters & St Andrew's House:
Scottish Ambulance Headquarters on Maitland Street and the adjoining St Andrew's House with it's entrance on 48 Milton Street. Designed by Skinner, Bailey & Lubetkin in the late 1960s. Originally two linked buildings, they now act independently with St Andrew's House occupied by St Andrew's first aid and the Headquarters next door curently lying vacant (april 2011). One of the only two buildings in Scotland designed by this architectural practice with Lubetkin acting as a consultant. Lubetkin is one of the outstanding figures of pre-war British architecture (penguin pool, London zoo & Highpoint Flats, London). Lubetkin designed the main cross of the north elevation and the main staircase, Bailey was the lead architect on this project. Both buildings are A listed.
