We have been awarded a Commendation in the Building of the Year category at the Edinburgh Architectural Association Awards 2012 for Westfield Avenue in Edinburgh.


In awarding the Commendation the project was described by the Association’s assessors as:

“a collection of vibrant and optimistic buildings on a tight, complex, urban site in a mixed use area.”

7N are delighted to receive this recognition for the project and would like to express our thanks to clients Hart Builders and Dunedin Canmore Housing Association who embraced the prospect of a challenging site and testing economic circumstances to create a vital new neighbourhood of homes in West Edinburgh. We would also like to thank our fellow design team members, Will Rudd Davidson, Keenan Consultancy and Thomas and Adamson and acknowledge that the success of this project was due to a truly collaborative approach by all involved.

Our Work - In May, 7N signed the Architect’s Declare open letter which has been signed by over 625 architectural practices. Signing the Architect’s Declare letter involves endorsing eleven ‘pledges’ which range from advocacy and raising awareness of climate and biodiversity emergencies, to significant changes in working practices around carbon modelling, resource use and knowledge sharing. Like many others, we have turned the lens on the operations of our practice and our projects to better understand where we can make a real difference and how meaningful changes can be advocated and realised. Our research will be shared in a sustainability focused blog series to document this journey, but to mark today’s day of climate action we’re offering some initial findings along with links to information others may find useful and interesting ; to read the full article, visit our Journal page - link in bio.
