The frontage of the Ocean Terminal shopping centre in Edinburgh has received a radical makeover as part of a major investment by Resolution Property to increase footfall by enhancing the visitor experience. In addition to 70 shops, cinema, spa, gym, home to the Royal Yacht Britannia.

Architects Keppie, say that the new extension "develops a more affirmative relationship with the street, coming out from the shadows of the overhang, providing a new entrance and visual connectivity with the interior." The new extension has also created a high-profile unit for H&M.

The extension has been clad with Stereo-kinetic with hundreds of freely-moving stainless steel sheets suspended from open mesh grating panels. Gusts of wind, traffic, even people walking by cause the metal rectangles to ripple in an ever-changing display.

The kinetic artwork has been designed in such a way as to allow the passage of natural daylight through the underlying window openings on the second floor level.
