It’s good to see construction re-starting on our Jordanhill Park project for Cala Homes West. This drone shot was taken during lockdown but Phase 1 will now be completed shortly and Phase 2 is underway again.

In addition to the first two apartment buildings already completed at Southbrae Drive, this phase of construction will provide a mix of 1,2 & 3 bedroom apartments, townhouse terraces and detached homes alongside the developments new Sales Suite, set to launch later this year.

Each of these new homes have been developed with the client, Cala Homes West, as bespoke designs specifically created for their unique setting offering residents the chance to enjoy living in the mature parkland estate of Jordanhill. With landscape and public realm a core focus of the masterplan design, streets and spaces have been designed around people rather than vehicles, allowing both residents and members of the public alike to roam freely in their enjoyment of this new neighbourhood.

Our Holyrood Distillery is up for the Regeneration/Conservation award at the Edinburgh Architectural Awards this Wednesday. To celebrate, we are re sharing our blog post telling the story of the Distillery from the opening week in August 2019 (link in bio). The project was designed to bring visitors closer to the production than in traditional distilleries. Tour groups pass under the lyne arms of the copper stills and through a series of exhibition and production rooms, before sampling the spirit in the tasting area with dramatic views onto Salisbury Crags

The new masterplan creates a placemaking framework where every space has a clear purpose and defined sense of ownership, creating a new neighbourhood woven into the social and physical fabric of the area. Working in close collaboration with the community, a strategy was developed with local stakeholders that would transform perceptions and rebuild a strong sense of place and community with the full phased demolition and complete redevelopment of the street. In the new homes, existing residents will enjoy density housing in a comfortable and secure environment, with private front and back gardens, tree lined streets and accessible open spaces.

We’re delighted that Phase 1 of 7N’s regeneration of Fraser Avenue in Inverkeithing for Kingdom Housing Association has won Affordable Housing Development of the Year (Large Social Rent) at this year’s Scottish Home Awards. Working with contractor Campion Homes and landscape architects Rankin Fraser, the project transforms a mid-20th century housing estate which was no longer fit for purpose. This award is a testament to Kingdom Housing Association and the team’s long-term commitment to delivering successful places of enduring quality. Phase 2 of the Fraser Avenue development is currently in-progress on-site.
7N Architects have submitted a planning application for a low carbon house in Pilrig in Edinburgh. Located on Spey Street Lane, just off Leith Walk, the 3 bedroom dwelling will replace a disused car garage. The building adopts fabric first principles to minimise energy consumption, constructed from a highly insulated timber structure with triple glazed windows. Heating, hot water and electrics is via a combination of low carbon technologies including solar panels, mechanical ventilation heat recovery (MVHR) and air source heat pump. Rainwater harvesting and low flow fittings minimise water consumption. A double height living space with mezzanine is positioned at the rear of the property with bedrooms arranged over two storeys adjacent to the lane at the front. A raised courtyard at first floor level brings daylight and air into the heart of the house whilst maintaining privacy for occupants and neighbours. The exterior reflects the character of the lane with a rough-hewn stone base adjoining the existing stone garden walls and a metal sliding shutter similar to those found along the lane at the entrance. The upper storey and double-pitched roof will be clad in standing seam copper.

We’ve recently submitted a planning application for Rowanbank Gardens, a brownfield development of 126 new homes in Corstorphine. Working with our clients Artisan Real Estate, the project will redevelop a former care home to provide much needed one, two and three bedroom homes for the city, including 25% affordable. The site, which is well connected to public transport, will encourage car-free city living, with generous secure cycle parking and car club provision. The new homes are designed for flexible, family living, making it easier to live a sustainable lifestyle. The shared courtyard garden, designed in collaboration with Rankinfraser Landscape Architecture, will be the heart of this new dense, liveable place, with inclusive spaces for play, communal growing and relaxation to support a sense of community, and promote well-being.

New Blog Post - Making Edinburgh a City Where Data Drives Sustainable Transport, Not Cars. What if we harnessed Edinburgh’s tech expertise to create Scotland’s first truly smart city, using the power of big data to help us all make more informed choices about the way we move around the city? Could we use this tool to incentivise and reward better choices, to re-programme a city that has been accustomed to reaching for the car keys to start reaching for the bike or trainers instead?
