Colinton is a suburb in the South of Edinburgh, the original heart of Colinton is still referred to as "Colinton Village", with small specialty shops and many original buildings remaining intact. The village has a unique historical and cultural history which is what The Shed Project aims to celebrate. 


 Colinton Village Enterprise has long used the former coach house in Spylaw Park, known locally as The Shed, as the base for the popular community events, Art in the Park and Tea in the Park. 

The Shed Project will transform the building for the future, forming a community hub where the area's historical past inspires creativity, connection and participation for generations to come.

The Shed Project

The proposed multi-functional building would provide a café; gallery space; an activity and performance venue for local groups and artists; and an information bureau for local attractions and services.


The Shed will be at the heart of the village, open to all, strengthening community ties, reducing isolation and acting as a social hub for the people of Colinton.

Transforming this building has been a passion of several members of the Colinton community and you can find out more about the volunteer team in the 'About' section.
