Union Court is set to become one of Inverness' most distinguished city centre retail locations when it opens at the end of 2022. This four-story building, which opens onto Union Street and Baron Taylor's Street, is the city's most significant development in almost a decade.
Union Court’s developer, Swilken Estates, approached Dynam to work on the name and brand after a recommendation from another of our clients. Following a brand workshop, our superstar designers and copywriters collaborated to come up with a number of name and brand concepts before settling on the final version.
Union Court is a classic-sounding name that refers to the development's location on Union Street and alludes to the building's encompassing – yet open – layout. The term is appropriate for both the commercial and residential components of the project, and it refers to the new ground-floor business unit arrangement as well as the courtyard-style garden on the upper residential floors. The word 'union' conjures up images of bringing people and places together.
