310479cf1ca0b4b19b6dd986bb420efb

Phase 1 construction works are well underway on the first Apartments, Townhouses and the historic David Stow Building at Jordanhill Park, a project which will deliver 400 new homes for CALA Homes West. Demolition works are continuing in preparation for later phases of the development with Phase 2 programmed for site start in early 2020.

Works on David Stow have entered a key phase as scaffolds are now installed on the buildings East elevation which will facilitate replacement of all existing windows alongside masonry conservation repair works prior to internal fit out.

With external envelope works nearly complete and internal fit out now progressing at pace, the two new-build apartment blocks at Southbrae Drive will be the first completed homes when construction works conclude in November 2019. The first new residents of Jordanhill Park are scheduled to move in not long after.

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.

It’s been four years since 7N first visited Engine Shed site with the excitement and anticipation of a new project. This week the @holyrooddistillery team celebrated the first whisky pouring from an Edinburgh still in over 100 years. We wanted to take the opportunity to reflect on the transformation, and say congratulations to all involved. Cheers! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Swipe to see how things have changed, and read more about the history of the site on our journal (link in bio). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo by @zacandzac

7N are happy to announce that our Knab project in Shetland has been shortlisted in the Masterplanning category for the 2019 AJ Awards. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The masterplan represents an admirable initiative by the Shetland Islands Council to consult the local Lerwick community in the development of the vision for repurposing this publicly owned site to deliver the affordable housing that is essential to sustain the future economy of the Islands. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The project will utilise a key town centre site in Lerwick, formerly the only high school on the Shetland Islands, to deliver forms of affordable housing and related mixed uses which are not currently being delivered by the public or private sectors. The buildings and public realm have been designed to stitch the site into the grain of Lerwick’s Old Town. Staggered building forms are offset around intimate streets, spaces and residential courtyards, designed in collaboration with Rankin Fraser Landscape Architecture. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 7N are very proud to be part of the team on this project, and this nomination is wonderful recognition for all involved. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @rankinfraserlandscapearch @architectsjournal ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Image by @darcstudio_troy
