To celebrate ten years of practice, we have put together this book of projects and ideas to mark the occasion and reflect on the path we have traveled since 7N Architects were founded in 2009. It is dedicated, with many thanks, to all of our clients, colleagues and collaborators who have put their faith in us and supported us on this exciting journey. Read the book online

This is the opening week for the Holyrood Distillery, Edinburgh’s first new single-malt whisky distillery in almost 100 years. The project has been designed by 7N Architects and delivered in collaboration with ISG Construction, Blyth and Blyth, David Adamson Group, ICENI projects, Cubit3D and Threebrand as well as a fantastic team of specialist contractors and craftspeople. Located at the foot of the Salisbury Crags, the new distillery involves the adaptive reuse and extension of the Grade B listed former railway terminus. Unlike in traditional distilleries - where the visitor experience has often been retrospectively grafted onto the existing distilling installation – the Holyrood Distillery weaves the visitor experience into the distilling process from the beginning. 7N’s approach combines heritage and modernity by revealing the historic character of the original building and enhancing it with a new extension as both the arrival point for visitors and the climax of the visitor experience. The tasting area is orientated towards Salisbury Crags so that visitors can savour a dram at the end of their journey whilst looking out to the dramatic landscape which embeds the experience in Scotland's Capital City. 7N would like to thank everyone involved in bringing the project to fruition and wish the Holyrood Distillery team all the very best with their new venture.

We have recently completed concept designs for employee housing to serve the new Alloy Wheel Facility in Fort William. The need for new housing is due to the lack of availability in the local market which won't meet the needs of the number of new employees expected to relocate to the area. The proposed architecture is a contemporary interpretation of traditional highland housing with a variety of pitched roof forms. Different typologies raging from 1 to 5 beds have been designed around a single 4.3m module to facilitate efficiency in modular construction and potential for extension and configuration of internal layouts to suit different individual styles of living.
