    Our Vision

    In the heart of Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site, Panmure House is Adam Smith’s only surviving home. We aim to restore not only its fabric but its rightful place as a hothouse of global economic and social debate.

    He was the founder of modern economics, a key thinker of the Scottish Enlightenment. Today, more than two centuries on from his death, his writings remain central to the way the global economy works.

    The project

    This A-listed building will be re-energised. Careful renovations and sensitive contemporary adaptations will play host to debates, lectures, exhibitions, meetings, concerts and educational programmes.

    Edinburgh Business School

    The project is led by Edinburgh Business School, home to the world’s largest MBA programme. As a leader in entrepreneurial debate, we’ve been inspired by the opportunity to re-invigorate this vital piece of economic and social history.

Our Mission

We want to conserve, restore and reinvigorate Panmure House as a home for economic and social debate and the latest academic thinking. 
 
But more than this. We want Panmure House to be a vital resource for the people of Edinburgh and beyond; for the community, for business and students. To achieve this, we need your support.
 
The total costs for the project are around £4 million. This will be raised from various sources - but mostly from people like you.

Re-enlightenment

This A-listed building will be re-energised. Careful renovations and sensitive contemporary adaptations will play host to debates, lectures, exhibitions, meetings, concerts and educational programmes.
