The Breakfast Mission is a unique community of creative enterprises mostly working in the built environment. It consists of approximately 400 square meters of working accommodation in an 1888 converted four storey high Mission Hall in the heart of the historic Edinburgh Old Town. The City Centre is a World Heritage site and the building itself is listed Grade B. The location of the building is fascinating. Although in the heart of the Old Town at its most dense the precise location of the building on Old Fishmarket Close between the busy Cowgate and the pedestrianised section of the Royal Mile makes for a very quiet working environment. The High Street (Royal Mile) is 30 seconds walk, Waverley Station, buses to Edinburgh Airport and forthcoming tram all about five minutes walk. Parking can be found in one of two multi-storey car parks in Blackfriars Street and Holyrood Road respectively less than three minutes walk away.
Not far from the Breakfast Mission are some of Edinburgh’s most famous public attractions, not least the Castle, the Parliament, the Palace of Holyrood House and the Royal Museum of Scotland. Edinburgh University also sits nearby and the main shopping street of Princes Street is six minutes walk away.
The conversion of the building has been designed to accommodate a variety of potential offices with the idea of providing flexibility for individual offices and the possibility of working creatively together where appropriate. Office space can be as little as five square meters, being a corner of a larger office. The receptionist to Richard Murphy Architects, who occupy the majority of the top two floors, also acts as receptionist for the other offices. Space is rented on a square meter basis with a service charge levied proportionately. The service charge covers gas and electricity, daily cleaning and building insurance. For an additional small sum a telephone answering service is also offered. The building is fully networked and offices can use RMA (Richard Murphy Architects) photocopying and printing facilities at cost. All employees of all enterprises in the building are issued with keys and an alarm code. A ground floor room is available for secure bicycle storage where there are also two showers rooms and lockers. A conference room seating 12 and a second meeting room seating six are available. There is parking for one vehicle and this space is currently rented by Richard Murphy Architects. All enterprises are licensees of “The Breakfast Mission” and a standard licence agreement can be viewed. VAT is charged.
