We’re happy to announce that both The Knab and Western Harbour have been shortlisted for this year’s Scottish Design Awards in the Master Planning and Future Project categories, respectively.

The Knab project will utilise a key town centre brownfield site in Lerwick to deliver forms of affordable housing and related mixed uses which are not currently being provided by the public or private sectors on the Shetland Islands.

Western Harbour will transform empty, reclaimed, land in the Port of Leith to create a new waterfront community comprising over 1,600 homes within a mixed use neighbourhood which will include shops, commercial space, a health centre and one of the largest new parks in the Edinburgh for over a hundred years.

Winners will be announced at the Scottish Design Awards in Glasgow on August 22nd.

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.

A masterplan prepared by a 7N Architects-led team for the site of the former high school in Lerwick, Shetland, has been unanimously approved by Shetland Islands Council’s Development Committee for public consultation prior to adoption as Supplementary Planning Guidance. The project is an initiative by Shetland Islands Council to utilise a key town centre site in Lerwick to deliver forms of affordable housing and related mixed uses which are not currently being delivered by the public or private sectors. The unique combination of high house prices and construction costs in Shetland mean there is a large affordability gap between social rented and private housing which has become a critical factor in retaining and attracting young people to the Islands who are essential to sustain the future economy • Find put more on our journal page - link in bio.
