The shock demise of Malcolm Fraser Architects was as sudden as it was unexpected and is particularly cruel for having come so soon after the most savage recession since the war and with the country now, according to some accounts in the middle of a boom. That is reflected in the practice’s own recent output, with a trio of designs featured in this annual. Led by Arcadia Nursery in Edinburgh which shows a playful approach to brief, they include new thinking on the delivery of social housing at West Pilton Street, also in Edinburgh and a dramatic theatre space delivered on the tightest of budgets at Speirs Lock, Glasgow. Taken together this swansong is a sad lament for what could have been but if we begin on a sad note then I hope that this book will demonstrate that there remains breadth as well as depth to our architecture scene. As in past years we seek to showcase as broad a range of work as possible to document what has been achieved around the country over the past twelve months; from new social housing in Laurieston from Page\Park and Elder & Cannon to an industrial expansion of a Kirkcudbright food processing factory by T-A-P.. Led by the relaible hands at Reiach & Hall, who celebrated their half century in style with a Stirling Prize nomination for Maggie’s Lanarkshire, this

year’s clutch of projects show how a small project can make a big impression. Elsewhere the usual suspects have had a storming year with JM Architects celebrating the opening of their new Glasgow studio with a half dozen submissions, including the Albus office building in Bridgeton and Kirroughtree visitor centre at Galloway Forest Park. Smaller practices also make their mark with Gauldie Wright & Partners demonstrating a healthy approach to mental health in Dundee and Arc Architects delivering a masterclass in how to bring our historic townscapes back to life with Dreel Halls, Anstruther. Indeed such is the volume of entries this year, that we simply did not have the room to print them all and I urge you to log onto urbanrealm. com/buildings to bring yourself up to speed with the full set. It is a diverse collection which will hopefully inspire future work. Cumulatively these projects demonstrate the extent of talent at play in Scotland but they also highlight the scale of lost potential represented by the passing of the team at Malcolm Fraser. It is imperative that others fill the silence now their music has stopped. John Glenday Editor, Urban Realm

Westhill Community Church Public Aberdeenshire This project involved the construction of a church consisting of a 370-seat sanctuary, six meeting rooms of varying sizes including a dedicated youth room, offices, crèche and community cafÊ as well as various offices and classrooms associated with the life of a busy community church on a green field site in the Westhill area of Aberdeenshire. Functional and contemporary in appearance the building is designed around a feature sanctuary with glulam structure expressed internally to encourage use by the wider community. A single storey foyer terminates with a public cafe and external patio offering view across the low land and adjacent SUDS pond. Small room accommodation comprising meeting rooms, offices and a creche are grouped in a two storey linear building positioned parallel to the sanctuary. External materials comprising silicon render, zinc, hybrid curtain walling and facing brick offer a high quality, low maintenance finish. High levels of insulation minimise heat loss through the building envelope. Large windows and discreetly positioned roof lights flood the building with natural light. The use of natural ventilation has been maximised and a biomass boiler system offers an environmentally sound heating solution. The building achieved an A Energy Performance Rating.

Theatre Royal Public Glasgow The foyer extension for Scottish Opera at Glasgow’s Theatre Royal focused on the audience’s journey from ‘street to seat’ – on improved approach, entrance, intuitive internal wayfinding and the provision of enhanced audience facilities. Provision of lifts to provide full access to all upper theatre balconies and compliance with accessibility legislation was an important driver behind the project, but also the lient’s desire to literally ‘open up’ the theatre and opera as an art form by the provision of open and welcoming foyers to attract a wider audience. A dramatic extension addressing the street corner of Hope Street and Cowcaddens Road, allows the Theatre to celebrate the corner in a fashion prevalent through Victorian Glasgow. The form of the extension is derived from the splendid category A listed auditorium. To provide a column free interior the edge structural articulation of the various plan levels plays various roles, cantilevering in one direction towards the free standing middle of the plan, sheltering the ground level approach and finally shaping the roof line expression. Requiring significant depth to carry out these roles, the lateral length of the structural columns is exploited to frame a perimeter of bays around the foyer, enclosed by an ‘in and out’ metal cladding and glazing.

Tron Church Public Glasgow The aim of the development was to extend the existing Tron Church operating at 25 Bath Street into the adjoining derelict premises. The buildings (which are not listed) date back to around 1820 when they were built as residential houses, then around 1894 they were extended to the rear of the site to form 'The Central Halls' (a Masonic Hall). These existing buildings had eight different floor levels with no passenger lift, nor level street access from Bath Street. The main objectives were to provide increased usable floor area and facilities for the church as well as provision of an accessible entrance from Bath Street and improved accessibility internally (provision of a lift). The scheme also allowed increased/ improved toilet provision revamped thermal performance and provision of a visible, coherent building frontage giving the church street presence and tidying up the ad hoc existing elevation. To address accessibility issues a new set of entrance doors at Bath Street pavement level, including a dedicated entrance and defined internal areas for Cornhill Scotland (the teaching college run from the church), were built and an internal wheelchair lift links the street entrance to the main ground floor level, thereafter access to the mainaccommodation areas is to be provided by a new passenger lift located in the existing lightwell. Also included are new toilets, a baby changing room as well as new multi purpose rooms, a cafe, common room, offices and college library/ teaching facilities.

Alpine House Public Edinburgh This is the first new glasshouse to be built in the Botanic Garden for over thirty years and the only one in Britain dedicated to growing alpine plants in a tufa rockscape. The naturalistic display complements the traditional sand-bed displays in the adjacent glasshouses. The key design drivers were to respond to the exacting living conditions of these plants and to provide an iconic structure which would act as a landmark in its own right. Alpine plants naturally grow in cold, windy and dry conditions with an abundance of daylight. The glass umbrella modifies the microclimate by providing shelter from excessive rain and increasing wind speed at ground level while transmitting maximum light. Its shape evokes flowers opening to the sun and the angular mountain tops so prevalent in alpine settings. The plants are grown in tufa, a type of porous rock. It projects beyond the edges of the glass roof to provide new planting beds and appears to form a base to the new structure, which akes the form of a 7m tall rhomboid of glass, Tufa and stainless steel that offers both an optimal climatic environment and structural drama. The structural elements were prefabricated in Belgium and brought to site for erection and glazing and the landscape was carried out by the garden's own horticultural team. This small but striking project provides the Garden with a dramatic 21st Century addition.

Kirroughtree Visitor Centre Public Galloway Forest Park A flagship visitor Centre at Galloway Forest Park for the Forestry Commission Scotland forming part of a roll out programme of five centres around Scotland offering improved facilities for visitors Three modulated roof forms with top light cover the main public space; their internal form is revealed giving a sense of enclosure to the spaces below. These forms are part of the ventilation strategy and have ‘black out’ blinds to conform with dark skies standards. The building form has been designed so as to have an appropriate relationship with the Forest setting. Although the topography is challenging all paths within the immediate vicinity of the Centre have been designed to the appropriate standards enabling universal access. The Kirroughtree Project entailed the construction of a new visitor centre and bike / outdoor shop, the demolition of redundant buildings and the refurbishment of the old visitor centre to provide improved classroom facilities. As an outcome, the new visitor facility gives better connection to the trails for bikes and walkers and creates a sustainable facility allowing visitors to enjoy the benefits of the forest and dark skies.

Cutty Sark Community Centre Public Bellsmyre The Cutty Sark community facility in Bellsmyre, West Dunbartonshire is located on the site of the former Howatshaws Community Hall. The brief required a design that would provide a flexible multi purpose hall space for use by community groups alongside permanent office accommodation for the newly formed Bellsmyre Development Trust. Collective Architecture have designed the new centre as two distinct volumes, which house the hall and office space. A single storey timber band ties the two volumes together and forms the entrance foyer. A clear public frontage has been created along the south facing street elevation by carefully arranging the off street parking, seating, bicycle stands and soft landscaping A private garden area has been created to the back of the building which can serve as a spill out area for the main hall or play spaces, whilst a large open space to the north of the site will be developed to provide complimentary space to the new community building. Landsaping works have been delivered through an associated environmental fund.

The project involved the refurbishment and re-modelling of the existing building and external areas and the removal of existing internal walls and finishes and a full refurbishment to a revised layout. Alterations to the existing entrances were carried out together with the provision of DDA compliant access around the building. The new cafe area now has splendid views looking over Loch Achray Forest. Natural play areas have been installed along the route of the Waterfall Trail and at Lumber Jill a new ingenious use of trees has been used to create a maze for children to play on, giving this listed building a new lease of life.

City of Edinburgh Methodist Church Public Edinburgh The Methodist Chapel on Nicolson Square, designed by the then city architect Thomas Brown, was chosen in 2009 as the preferred choice for retention of four Methodist churches in Edinburgh. In this £2.2m refurbishment and extension project, the previously detached church and adjacent halls are linked as a single amenity by a glazed lift and small conservatory negotiating the different levels of the buildings. The café is relocated to the ground floor of the hall, which benefits from level access and creates an accessible entrance sequence, below the upper level hall. The project is essentially conceived as a series of interventions within different historic settings inside the building. The material palette is high quality, simple and limited – limed oak, slate, terrazzo, zinc, limestone and glass. The materials adapt in tone and quantity to respond to their differing situations, but are linked together in a common language of ‘frame and panel’.

Private Residence Residential Edinburgh A professional couple purchased the site with the dream of building a bespoke new family home for relaxing and entertaining. We worked closely with the clients from the very start, gaining an understanding of their needs as a family and their aspirations for the house in order to unlock the design. Briefed to build a 'modern but timeless' piece of architecture, we worked collaboratively with the clients on site formulating ideas to create the right balance of contemporary within a suburban street. They wanted to retain as much of the existing mature landscaping as possible as the site was previously part of a large garden to a 1950s bungalow. Decisions were made based on emotional mapping, where we guided the clients through an imagined journey of their home. This informed the design which was honed to work with physical constraints of the site, resulting in a spacious, contemporary family home that reflects the clients' aspirations. Designed to create a light and airy feel the property is heated with an air source heat pump and rooftop photovoltaics.

It occupies approximately half of an existing garden in the open space between the back of houses on Forth Street and the gable end of houses on Hart St in the New Town of Edinburgh. Acting as a 'bookend' to this gable, hiding as much of it as possible, the homes elevational treatment continues the pattern set up by the Hart Street houses of an indented ashlar base, string courses and a significant cornice which is now terminated by becoming the roof edge of a dramatic sloping roof. This roof made mostly of glass with inset photovoltaic cells is designed both to ensure daylight to the adjacent basement flat on Forth Street and also to act as a major collector of solar energy. Inside the roof are a number of insulated shutters which are capable of closing when the roof is in net heat loss mode and opening when there is a net heat gain.

West Burn Lane Residential St Andrews, Fife West Burn Lane is located in a conservation area in the historic centre of St Andrews and consists of six, four bed houses and eight, two & three bed apartments. The buildings are organised as discrete volumes which address a series of public and private urban courtyards. They mediate between the tight-knit medieval urban grain and the scale of the surrounding university buildings and church hall, increasing in scale towards the south. Taking cues from the historic rigg pattern of St Andrews, the buildings are tiered as they move down the lane; clear pends are maintained between which give sight to the sky and vegetation beyond and pick up the rhythm of doorways and thresholds in the historic stone walls of the Riggs. By alternating between two main house types within the narrow confines of the lane, the broad-fronted but narrow-depth and the narrow-fronted but deep plan, we were able to provide secluded private garden spaces that have aspect to the south-east. At the southern end of the site where the lane opens up there is a larger scale building in keeping with the grander and more spacious context, where the apartments take advantage of the panoramic views to the south. Located between these elements are two maisonette blocks. These are set back to create a new piece of public realm around a mature tree, a courtyard offering amenity space and off-street parking.

The ground floor has a large entrance porch leading into a large open plan dining/kitchen area, with full height sliding folding glazed doors leading to a covered seating area outside. Further inside the house is a family room, also with folding doors to access the courtyard outside. Off the family room is two downstairs bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite bathroom (Jack and Jill style). The upper floor contains two further bedrooms, a bathroom, upper floor lounge with a small private south facing balcony (restricted to align with the roof line above), and a small study area. The upper floor has voids cut into the floor, above the dining area and family room, to visually connect the two levels and create an increased sense height and space from the ground floor. A tall thin window to the dining area runs from ground floor to the roof eaves, also helping to connect both levels.

Larrys Cottage Residential Aberdeenshire Construction of a sustainable contemporary family home in Rothiemay is now completed. The scheme included the restoration and extension of a traditional lime and stone cottage situated in beautiful countryside and sheltered by mature trees. The redundant croft building sits within a sloping site and the extension sits sympathetically within the landscape, sitting harmoniously alongside its more established neighbour and setting. Natural materials including Scottish Larch cladding, natural stone and render are used throughout the design and heating is provided by a ground source heat pump. The design aims to retain the character of the cottage while creating new accommodation in the rural tradition. The proposal saves this idyllic building which has been restored with lime render and lime wash. An arrangement of buildings has been created around a sheltered courtyard form; the extension has been positioned to the south of the existing cottage and a glazed link helps to clearly distinguish between old and new whilst retaining the character of the existing cottage alongside. The design retains the character of the existing cottage while creating new accommodation in the rural tradition under the shelter of mature trees within the landscape setting.

The White Cube Residential Bearsden The 'White Cube' home extension in Bearsden involved demoltion of an existing conservatory and utility space and replaces these with a modern open plan living dining space. The client wanted an uncompromising modernist design which complemented the existing period home. The side boundary wall becomes the parapet wall which returns to become a flanking side wall. Large sliding folding doors open onto a newly landscaped patio with undercroft to the wide roof soffit. A large kitchen and dining area allow the family to live in a modern way which compliments the traditional spaces of the existing Victorian house. The corner glazed wall maximises views and light from the garden, allowing outside space to flow into and around the family room. Roof lights above also allow enjoyment of the sky even onthe most cloudy of Scottish days. The scheme was delivered as a traditional build with one main contractor and specialist glazing from Katzbeck. The glass is high performance triple glazed specification achieving a 0.6 U value. The roof is a single ply membrane with roof lights from Vision Ltd. The kitchen meanwhile is from Porcelanosa and has a work top and sink all in one piece with built in hob. Underfloor heating throughout keeps a constant temperature and reduced energy bills.

Birgham phase one Residential Coldstream The properties are located on the eastern edge of the village and comprise of two single storey steading conversions and three detached two storey houses. The site is steeped in history with the farm steading dating back to at least 1750 and forms part of the grounds of a 12th century chapel. The houses have been designed around a central courtyard, yet each one offers a high level of privacy and individuality and take advantage of exceptional views to the River Tweed and the Cheviot Hills. An eco minimalist approach has been adopted with extensive Southerly glazing to maximise solar gain, mass concrete floors, high levels of insulation and solar panels for hot water heating. Proposals for phases two and three are now on the drawing board and may include the rebuilding of the former county mansion on the site of Ayton Hall. Phase two will be built to 'Designing Streets' principles which maximise denisty and provide opportunities for place making.

Duke Street/ High Street Residential Glasgow There are 46 new two or three bedroom flats, built in two blocks and one commercial unit. in this new build development located on a brownfield site that stretches up over a steep slope from the thoroughfare of Duke Street to the ancient High Street. This presented a major architectural and building challenge particularly for an organisation determined to build accessible and affordable homes. A strategy was adopted to build only on the street frontages, with a pend created on the High Street to provide level access to the building. The central area between the two buildings was retained as a landscaped green space for residents and this private garden in the centre of the development now provides an oasis of security and privacy. The site lies in the shadow of Glasgow Cathedral and the city’s planners insisted that every detail should be sensitive to the character and heritage of the area. The apartments have been developed to balance the benefits of a city-centre location with very high standards of amenity for tenants. The flats are spacious, bright and well-appointed, and all have direct access to a private outdoor green space which links the development to the popular Drygate estate. The flats on High Street enjoy an open outlook to the south and views of the historic Cathedral precincts to the north. The Duke Street block has generous windows to living areas and access via a pedestrian bridge to the green space to the rear.

Ravelston Dykes Residential Edinburgh The existing house was built in the 1920s on the north side of Ravelston Dykes and is a two storey detached house laid out under a large pitched slated roof. Significant modernisation and alterations to the existing house created a new rear garden level living space and re-configured ground and first floors to provide more open plan living, dining and kitchen areas and to allow as much daylight as possible to penetrate the buildings north (rear) elevation. The key move was to remove an existing conservatory and relocate the stairs to create a single large living space at entrance level, opening up the rear facade with large glazed sliding and folding panels and a connecting stair directly down to garden level. The creation of a sunken terrace and garden room allow for direct contact with the garden while at the same time allowing direct late afternoon sunlight to penetrate the north facade. The main stair is relocated to the side of the house and takes up the space which was utility and shower room on the ground floor and the main bathroom on the first floor.

East Auchnabo Residential Slains, Aberdeenshire The design is based on the idea of ‘placing’ a new house inside the existing historic bothy. This idea preserves the history of the place, keeping the bothy visible from the road and at the forefront of the proposal whilst creating a new, contemporary house on the site. Not only is the idea of inserting the new build element of the project an aesthetic design feature, it also allows for the new house to be fit for contemporary living. The house is made up of traditional rural forms, comprising a series of inter-linked pitched roofs. The perpendicular wing - which houses the main living areas of the house features large areas of glazing to make the most of solar gain and natural sunlight, as well as capitalise on the fantastic views. Materials have also been selected to make obvious which parts of the house are new, so as not to detract from the historic bothy. The new house creates a vibrant and sustainable family home that is contemporary in spirit yet rooted in tradition.

Burns Wynd Residential Maybole, Ayrshire The 13 properties at Burns Wynd, Maybole, are staggered to reflect their hillside topography opening out views toward the Southern Uplands. They consist of nine two-bedroom and four three-bedroom homes, each designed to meet a range of needs through features such as downstairs bathrooms. A steep slope makes road access into the site difficult, therefore it was decided to utilise the road frontage with narrow deep plan houses leaving the remote south corner of the site for landscaping. The change in level across the site is such that each house will step up the slope by 600mm. The majority of houses are two bedroom and have been designed with hall, kitchen, bathroom and lounge in a deep plan pitched roof wing, linked to the adjacent house with a shallow pitched roof bedroom wing. This expresses the houses as linked individual properties and the shallow pitch link accommodates the changes in floor level. The larger three bedroom houses are used to stop end the terrace. The variation in depth between the living room Kitchen wing and the bedroom wing provides a south facing sheltered rear garden sitting area and at the front an entrance court.

Rathen View Residential Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire Landscaping and setting seems to set architecture apart, yet it is usually the last piece of the puzzle. This project is somewhat unusual. The clients had been working on the landscaping and setting of this house long before the house design had even made it to the drawing board. They have formed what is now a mature backdrop of trees that frame the house more than 20 years ago. For many, many years the landscape was maintained tirelessly, ready for the 'dream house'. The tunnel formed by trees that lead to the site heighten the expectation, creating a sense of magic and mystery that is to come and then you see it! The house stands proud and tells you that it is boldly here. The house is inviting and the timber linings give it real warmth and connection to the landscape. The house design is unashamedly different from the local architecture and that is what fills the clientĂ­s hearts with immense pride and satisfaction in what they have commissioned a home like no other.

Dumbarton Road Residential Glasgow Carson & Partners have completed new student housing for Alumno Developments, working with Kier Construction on the corner of Mansfield Park in Dumbarton Road, Glasgow. The £8m building is C&P’s first purpose-built student housing development in Scotland and provides 174 new rooms for Glasgow’s expanding student community. While student housing is a building type which often tends toward the mediocre, the minimal and the mundane, Dumbarton Road demonstrates that given the right design team, contractor, investment and ambition, high quality architecture can still result. Throughout its composition, the building represents a carefully designed but unashamedly contemporary response to context. The ground floor frontage, so often disappointing in new development, extends the adjacent traditional shop fronts with appropriate scale. Over the principal floor levels, carefully selected natural stone is graced with generously proportioned openings, elegantly positioned and crisply detailed in anodised aluminium. Above the natural datum set by the eaves of the dominant Victorian tenement form, an animated roofscape is allowed to develop, responding to the wider urban landscape and outlook.

Cornhill Terrace Residential Edinburgh The conversion of a double upper in Leith improves connections and circulation and creates more varied spaces for each family member by removing surplus walls and connecting spaces. The house was a traditional double upper, with a small entrance hall on the first floor and lots of doors, but no visual connection into or between spaces. By opening this space up, and making the living / kitchen into one open plan space, with a walnut pod at its centre, we made the spaces more useable but also with more articulation for the family’s growing children. The initial brief included storage for eight different guitars and amps, and an upstairs bathroom. The new dormer and raised ceilings makes the upper floor more spacious. The long wall running along the back of the living room and kitchen turned out to be a lovely old stone wall, and we chose the colours with the clients and a box of pantone postcards in the last month of the build, in each of the spaces.

St Andrews Crescent & Meadow Road Residential Whitehaven Introducing 27 two bedroom bungalows to Mirehouse, an area predominately established by two storey family homes, a strategy of long terraced blocks with clean lines and strong angled forms provide new homes specifically designed for elderly residents. The refined terrace form provides a fresh addition to the local vernacular, creating private open space within front and rear gardens, whilst also providing shared courtyards to the rear. Colour and material also play a warm and involved part of the new homes. A rust red brick with matching aluminium guttering and roof tile create a strong elegant form to the terrace. Steep changes in building height are expressed with a subtle elongation to the corner elevation, which helps to maintain a constant datum to the roof edge. Main entrance doors are recessed to provide security and cover, these have been picked out in three warm tones to provide an element of distinct character and ownership.

Oxgangs Road Residential Edinburgh We were approached by the clients of this detached bungalow in the South of Edinburgh to extend and extensively redesign the ground floor and existing attic. Our proposals saw the kitchen and dining room knocked together and extended to form a new large open plan kitchen/dining/living room as well as a shower and utility room. The clients also wanted direct access to the garden but due to the large level change we needed to integrate a set of external steps and balustrade into the design. The extension sees a lightweight timber and glass structure cantilevering over the top of a solid brick base, which also forms the stepped access down. The roof also cantilevers to allow a frameless glass corner that is framed by Western Red Cedar cladding further adding to the lightness of the extension. The entire house was also completely re-harled to complement the new works.

Laurieston Phase 1A Residential Glasgow This development of 200 affordable homes forms the first phase of regeneration for the Laurieston area of Glasgow. Working alongside Page/Park (pg 31), Elder and Cannon were asked to design 80 units, including the prominent southernmost flatted block and two housing terraces. The challenge was to create a sustainable development which rationalised the eccentricities of the southern edge - responding to the railway line, the busy environment of Cumberland Street, the edge condition to the new park - and create an object building of an appropriate stature to form a gateway partnership with a future building on the southwest corner of the masterplan. The architectural intention of the block lies in a contemporary interpretation of the traditional four storey Glasgow tenement where identity is derived from control of detail, scale, proportion and materiality. Its success is reliant upon the continued inclusion of the primary architectural elements, well proportioned windows, balconies, porches and appropriate quality to the primary materials of buildings and landscape with priority given to rigour, scale and proportion as devices to control and order the elevations.

Ocean Drive Residential Leith Surrounded by a working dock, casino, a derelict site and a roadway designated for the future route of a tramline, the initial design challenge was to develop a scheme that created quiet, insular areas whilst at the same time having a permeability to provide accessible links to the listed dock edge. A central mews lane was therefore created, forming an intimate home zone into which project private terraces, affording the new dwellings intimate external spaces. The lane is flanked on both sides by simple building forms, with pitched roof, three storey townhouses echoing the height and massing of the former industrial buildings. The legibility of the design is simple, with the two main spines of development creating a robust urban form, with frontage on to the street and the dock, whilst shielding the central area. Although the form of the townhouses has been deliberately kept simple to replicate the previous dockside buildings, a more contemporary approach has been taken to the fenestration, with generous window openings positioned within large panels of brickwork. The exposed steel frames and glass balustrading of the terraces further enhance the moden look. The project provided an alternative form of housing in an area saturated with flats.

Mid Rock Residential Elie, Fife We were the architects for this new house, which replaces an existing bungalow above a golden sandy beach on the Fife coast. The building is designed to make the most of the views towards the coastal lighthouse and across the Firth of Forth with an open plan living space linking the two storey main house to the smaller bothy accommodation at its side. Replacing an existing 1970s bungalow on the site the property incorporates a variety of eco features to lower its energy usage; including devotion of the entire south facing sloping roof to an array ofphotovoltaic panels, making the very most of the Scottish sun. A sedum roof has also been incorporated much to the delight of local sparrows with extensive glazing throughout ensuring that the house is quick to warm up, even in the depths of winter. Fortunately two wood burning stoves are also on offer to pump out much needed heat during chillier and overcast days. Scaled to the existing vernacular, this is contemporary beach-side architecture utilising a limited materials palette in simple forms to dramatic effect.

Mill Ring Conversion Residential East Neuk This historic steading has been rebuilt to provide a spacious home that could at a later date be split into three separate dwellings. The horse mill became the main living room, with adjacent barns providing a ground floor bedroom and bathroom, self-contained carer’s accommodation, dining room, kitchen, boot room and utillity. Upstairs are two bedrooms, a bathroom, sitting room and mezzanine study A frameless glass corridor connects the ground floor bedrooms with the main living space, kitchen, dining room and reception hall. There were many complex design issues to resolve, like how to insulate the roof while leaving its unique and characterful umbrella structure intact and visible from the inside. The solution, adding a second skin on top of the existing roof, meant increasing the height of adjoining walls. New eaves and timber lintels were also designed so that the new roof looked as if it had always been there. The entire mill structure needed reinforcing with a giant steel ring, this was installed a section at a time and involved carefully lifting the entire roof.

Utilising red stained Scottish Larch cladding to contrast against the black agricultural steel cladding the new lounge extension to the L-shaped home makes use of a glazed roof to maximise daylight from the Highland sun. This extension is attached directly onto the south side of the existing building with an accompanying boat shed retained, although a stable block has been removed to improve layout.

Black Rock Residential Johnshaven, Aberdeenshire Black Rock’, is a bespoke, one-bedroom home with a gross ground floor area of 44m2 and first floor area of 29m2. The site is located on the shores of the North Sea, within the traditional fishing village of Johnshaven. Situated within a conservation area, the compact site once housed the remains of an old stone bothy. The traditional form echoes the Scottish vernacular, merged with the contemporary look that clean lines and simple detailing bring. The entrance is stepped back from the front of the site in order to align itself with neighbouring buildings. The glazed gable optimises sunlight and frames the spectacular views along the shoreline and to the sea. Inside, a double-height, open-plan living area. On the first floor is a mezzanine bedroom, which is open to the living space below. A services core to north, houses the bathroom, stairs and utility room. This allows space for a linear open plan kitchen/living/dining to run almost the entire length of the footprint. The reclaimed sandstone rubble walls with lime pointing to the ground floor is a nod to the ruins of the house previously on the site. White render to the upper level provides a contrast to the stone at ground level and delivers a clean, simple and contemporary finish. The roof is slated to match the slate used throughout the surrounding area. Solar thermal panels installed to the south roof pitch help to provide the hot water supply with a wood burning stove satisfying a large part of the homes heating requirements.

The existing geometry was utilised to maximise space and light by creating a multifunctional zone of hidden storage and flexible panels, and relocating the stair to channel light into the basement. The panelled wall provides a focal point which connects the differently configured living spaces and provides a unified language. Storage has been maximised allowing the living areas to be uncluttered and therefore contributing to the sense of light and open space. The seamless grey resin floor provides continuity in the basement and augments the fluidity of the space as there are no defined thresholds between the rooms.

Laurieston, Phase 1A Residential Glasgow The opening of this first phase of the Laurieston regeneration project is the culmination of a very long journey, beginning in 2002, to transform the area and create a new residential quarter fit for the 21st century. The masterplan builds on the urban character of Glasgow, comprising clearly defined blocks to reinforce the grid-like quality of the city. Its character follows a contemporary tenement form, with a variety of housing types - apartments, maisonettes and terraced houses - exploiting where possible the rich possibilities of corners, southern aspect and courtyard environments. Following the Page\Park master plan, together with Elder & Cannon (pg 22) we have completed over 200 hundred affordable homes in a new layout of streets and mews settings designed with a sense of being overlooked to provide a passive sense of security. The ambition at the outset of the project was to achieve a powerful sense of place and a landmark for the future development of the Laurieston area.

Study bedrooms all face out onto the street, characterised by triangular bay windows which are inhabited and personalised by the students. The most prominent urban corner was chosen for the main entrance and a common room is placed beside it to act as a social meeting place as well as giving an active frontage to Holyrood Road. A driving motivation of the design was to avoid internal corridors so the flat plans are largely single sided with internal circulation day-lit from within the court. External circulation is via two suspended spiral staircases and broad, open balconies to encourage student interaction.

Quayside Marina Apartments Residential Arbroath The existing Fisherman’s Association is in a prime location overlooking the Inner Harbour Marina, llocated only 60m from the sea and ideally situated for the High Street. Quayside Marina consists of ten apartments ranging in size from three penthouses to a further seven two-bedroom dwellings, each with fantastic sea views over the Harbour and the Tay Estuary. Stone walls bound and contain Brothock Water which currently flows through a culvert under the site. The waterway is proposed to be opened up exposing the water course and alleviating water back up during high tides. The stone walls were retained and repointed forming a solid base to the development. The scale of the proposed dwellings respect that of the existing street scene and the introduction of lean-to’s, slate and metal roofs, timber clad and white smooth cement rendered walls reflect the spirit of building form and materials of, in particular, the rear of Marketgate and the ‘Black Shed’ overlooking the inner harbour.

West Pilton Crescent Residential Edinburgh Malcom Fraser Architects were given a brief to design a standalone exemplar development for future works, and to provide modern, energy efficient social housing in a range of unit sizes at Pennywell Road/West Pilton Crescent, one of ten separate sites within a masterplan for the wider area The design strategy sets the main frontage of the housing along Pennywell Road with small private gardens and public realm landscape. The remainder of the triangular site forms a large common garden area with adjacent ancillary buildings including bike and bin stores and a communal plant room. One of the key design considerations has sought to develop the principles the Smithson’s described as “good ordinariness”, referencing the traditional tenement typologies of the New Town of Edinburgh, with a simple language of large repetitive window openings to allow as much daylight into the units as possible. The homes use a limited palette of durable, repairable and recyclable materials. Garden walls, entrance lobbies and pathways use the same brick and this simplicity helps to create a cohesive architectural language across the site. A combined heat & power system has been used with individual smart meters located in each property and U- Values are in excess of current building regulations

The Mill Residential Biggar, Scottish Borders The Mill sits amongst a collection of disused farm buildings that nestle into a steep hill over looking a valley in the Scottish Borders. The mill’s distinctive long form emerging out of the hillside gives it a striking yet exposed position on the site and supported an architectural solution contained within the original walls, which were consolidated and repaired using stone from the site and repointed with lime mortar. The roof and floors were beyond repair, so a new insulated timber building was slotted within the existing structure. The length and orientation of the original stone walls of the mill building allowed this new structure to push up above the top of the walls to form a largely glazed clerestory. The original front door is reused, entering into a boot room lined in larch. This opens on to a dining-hall with glimpses into the main living spaces beyond. Steps lead down a half level to the kitchen, which opens out to a wild garden space through large doors in an opening that originally allowed cart access. The main living space is half a level up from the dining-hall, with a new window pushed in to the thickness of the wall, acting as a viewing point for the valley below. An accessible bathroom, utility and bedroom are tucked in to the partially underground north end of the building. On the upper floor there are three bedrooms, two accessed from the west stair and one from the east stair, allowing a double height space between to give light below.

Bellevue Colonies Residential Edinburgh The original colonies have a unique character and identity and the challenge was to replicate this within the design of the new colony style houses. There is a sense of community which comes from sharing footpaths, gates and external stairs. The stairs also provide a social aspect as a place to sit in warmer weather and where you can interact with your neighbours as they relax in their private garden space. The detailing of building materials such as brick, zinc and slate, coupled with large window openings and glass balustrades, maintain the concept of traditional colony housing but give the development a more contemporary feel. The shared aspect of external areas has resulted in inhabitants taking a greater interest and responsibility in the upkeep of the property and its security. Residents have taken ownership of the shared spaces in terms of care, maintenance and aesthetic appearance. The common areas also benefit from natural surveillance from the large windows within the living spaces.

Maggie's Cancer Caring Centre Health Lanarkshire In 1964 Airdrie House was demolished to make way for Monklands Hospital and while the tree belt survived the demolition of the old house, over time the hospital's insatiable car parking needs spread, invading the once verdant northern edge, leaving it eroded and vulnerable. The site for Maggie's Lanarkshire is located on one of these northern car park areas. In a gesture that attempts to reinstate the idea of a boundary to the hospital estate, the new Maggie's embraces two detached stands of these mature lime trees with a finely articulated brick wall, once more bringing a sense of continuity and enclosure to this northern edge. At its heart, the design of the Maggie's Centre is a tale of enclosed gardens behind a beautiful Danish hand-made brick that at moments in its peregrination around the site opens up to form a delicate perforated lattice. The wall offers a degree of separation from the hospital grounds, but through its pierced nature, its human scale and the haptic quality of its materiality this break is subtle and in places even marginal. The building plan is perforated with four sheltered courts. Golden metal light catchers hover over these spaces reflecting sunlight onto the floor of the court. A simple repetitive framed structure defines and creates an intimate scale while allowing spaces and rooms to either open up to the central sequence of public rooms or close down to create private moments.

One of these spaces had to be a ‘black-box’ environment with no natural daylight, to mimic a theatre environment. Both spaces needed to be capable of being rigged to ensure flexibility and adaptability for the future needs of the organisation. The resultant spaces are rectilinear in form. Emphasis has been placed on ensuring durable materials and adaptability for future use. High level acoustic panels reduce the reverberation time within both spaces to around 1 second, which is a happy medium to deal with acoustic and amplified music as well as the spoken voice. Serge wool wall drapes allow the space to be reconfigured and the reverberation time refined dependent on whether the drapes are open or closed. To avoid disturbance from outside noise, these two larger spaces both have a displacement ventilation system, which can heat the spaces in winter and cool them in summer.

Externally the façade was sensitively repaired and lightly cleaned to maintain its aged character and improvements made through the removal of redundant entry ramps, service enclosures and railings. Internally the approach was to create a rich texture, exposing the original construction techniques by stripping back deteriorated dry linings and leaving surfaces and structure exposed, which was also driven by budget limitations. Similarly, the majority of services have been left exposed. The major insertions, such as the main stair, bars and main entrance doors, are formed from a consistent language of slightly rusted/ blackened plate mild steel, which gives a clear distinction between old and new elements and at the same time evokes the original construction techniques and Glasgow’s industrial past.

Arcadia Nursery Education Edinburgh Arcadia Nursery provides early-years education for up to 113 children aged from six weeks to five years of age, at the University of Edinburgh's King's Buildings Campus. The proposal was designed around the ‘free-play’ concept, which helps develop children’s confidence, independence and creativity by encouraging them to choose the activities they would like to participate in, or whether they would like to be inside or outside, rather than the day being dictated to them. The layout of the nursery has been designed to facilitate this, whilst ensuring the children are safe and easily supervised. Each age group’s playroom is clearly identifiable as a welcoming, contemporary domestic form which creates a sense of belonging and ownership. These pavilions are linked together by a single storey building, with large rooflight offering views up to the tree canopy. The nursery is connected to the central University CHP network, uses no mechanical cooling or ventilation. The design stage Breeam assessment achieved a high score of 82.2 per cent, with material and pollution sections achieving a 100 per cent score.

Castlepark Primary School Education Irvine Castlepark Primary School and Early Years Centre is a fully refurbished and re-modelled unlisted late 20th Century school in Irvine. Flexible and open plan spaces provide an innovative learning environment and play spaces well equipped to develop learning in the context of the Curriculum for Excellence, giving pupils access to a wide range of learning contexts. New outdoor spaces also give the children frequent opportunities for spontaneous, planned and purposeful activity through physical, sensory and imaginative and investigative play in natural surroundings. A heart space for the school has been created and this allows for a range of the different teaching activities, social encounters and learning experiences to occur during the school day. To create the heart space, the internal partitions of the original class spaces have been reconfigured to make open side learning areas. This simple move has allowed for an increase in shared area, and makes a whole space that can be timetabled to allow practical and group lessons to be delivered. New additions to the school use sustainable materials and organic forms that create a softer profile to the school building. These parts of the design help define the buildings relationship with its play space by carefully shaped spaces for outdoor learning to take place. Careful location of entrances and classroom exits allow a good level of access.

Police Scotland, Riverside East Commercial Glasgow Riverside East provides 120,000sq/ft of Grade ‘A’ office accommodation in South Dalmarnock, Glasgow. Located on a brownfield site in the east end, Riverside East was conceived to act as a catalyst for the regeneration of the area, which is recognised as a key gateway within the city. The site has been enhanced by contemporary public realm interventions and underpinned by social and economic regeneration. As a testament to the vision and success of the development the building was pre-let early in the delivery process to Police Scotland. The building has become the West of Scotland’s main office and administrative centre, welcoming 1,100 police officers and civilian staff when they move into the property in November 2015. Designed to BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standards, the building has been designed to respond to the Force’s operational and security requirements, whilst being open and welcoming to the community.

Dalmunach Distillery Commercial Carron Archial NORR designed the newly named Dalmunach Distillery located in the village of Carron, Aberlour, on the banks of the famous River Spey. The area is known as ‘Whisky Country’ with other great distilleries such as Glenlivet, Glenfiddich, Balvenie, Glenfarclas, Mortlach, Macallan, Cardhu, and Knockando located within an eight mile radius of the new Distillery. The Distillery has the unique configuration of eight stills (four pot and four spirit) arranged in a circle around the spirit safe and also clearly expresses the Mash House and Tun Room. The new Distillery will provide an increase of ten per cent in the company’s malt whisky distilling capacity, meaning 10 million litres of additional malt spirit each year. The design included: a plan in the form of a barley sheaf recalling the key ingredient whilst the two outer elements curve out to provide ‘welcoming arms’ to the main entrance. The Still House is housed in a distinctive glazed structure with adjacent Lochan to provide a memorable and – distinctive feature adjacent to the site entrance i.e. you will instantly know that this is a distillery Addressing the existing buildings opposite to provide continuity with the past it recycles the former Distillery buildings on the site to form a distinctive landform to screen both visibility and acoustically the yard area The simple building forms recall traditional buildings in a contemporary way by using pitched roofs and salvaged materials to reference the site's rich history.

The Albus Commercial Bridgeton, Glasgow The Albus is a high quality, robust and unique building that makes a positive urban statement and offers attractive workspaces that are incredibly efficient to operate. The innovation in this project is in how it avoids the conventional office approach: instead offering a more diverse, contemporary array of workspaces that are still extremely flexible. The minimal approach to the building allows the tenant to create their own identity within a building with a strong identity of its own. The use of exposed, fair faced concrete walls and soffit provides a robust solution and regulates the building temperature naturally. Due to the quality of finish, wall linings and suspended ceilings are done away with, creating tall, generous spaces and enabling better natural ventilation and more daylight throughout.

ARCHITECT ARCHIAL NORR I CLIENT SCOTTISH POWER I CONTRACTOR MILLER CONSTRUCTION

Finnieston Substation Commercial Glasgow The basic design parameters were dictated by Scottish Power’s exemplar scheme which sets out length, width, height and mass of the building. In addition to this the base scheme defines ventilation and access requirements which had to be adhered to comply with stringent technical and statutory guidelines. Whilst it is fair to say these constraints limited the team’s ability to push the limits of the design the sensitivity of the neighbouring conservation area and in particular the proposed sites direct relationship with the grade A listed terrace opposite allowed Archial NORR to create an architectural response which is not typical of its industrial function. The building therefore has a curved footprint mirroring the terrace opposite and raises its roof to deal with the transition from two to four storeys. This curve and lift create a more iconic form which sits as comfortably as a pavilion as it does as part of a terrace.

A new reception building and bridge link to the upper floor of the existing factory provides a much improved entrance for staff and visitors, addressing the street and adjacent riverside park. The majority of the buildings on the site are simple and pragmatic, however the client agreed that the entrance building should take on a more expressive form. Clad in inexpensive 'industrial' materials it nonetheless has a dynamic and distinctive profile. Where the cranked geometry of the bridge element meets the orthogonal geometry of the reception building large glass panels provide views out to the river. Below this, a load bearing concrete plinth resolves the structural complexities.

Life Sciences Building Commercial Inverness Campus This 1,000sqm two storey BREEAM Excellent speculative office / life sciences building has been designed to respond to its surroundings and the campus development brief, whilst maintaining future flexibility and adaptability. All services are integrated and shared facilities are located with the main core to allow for the wings to be flexible and adaptable. This flexibility is carried through to the site layout that has been designed to anticipate a variety of expansion options. The site and building have been woven into the campus fabric using dry stone walls that define the building and address the main campus green whilst allowing the creation of informal internal and external gathering spaces. The form is broken into easily understood elements using a limited palette of timber and glass. Dark grey and natural tones are employed as a direct response to the campus brief, and to respond to the buildingĂ­s future woodland setting. A modified treated timber system called Accoya from Russwood has been used throughout to ensure dimensional stability and durability.

New Bridge Street Historic Ayr The buildings at New Bridge Street are grade A and B listed Georgian tenements dating from 1787 and 1834. They form a significant bridgehead and gateway across the River Ayr marking the entry to the town centre. The fabric of the buildings was deteriorating badly as a result of decades of poor maintenance resulting in leaking roofs, extensive rot and eroding stonework. The outside of the building had also been given multiple coats of pink paint in the 20th century. The project set out to repair and restore the external fabric, renew all the shopfronts in the original glazing pattern and remove all the paint back to the original sandstone finish. Extensive areas of cement render were removed and lime renders applied to allow the building to breath again.

Drygate Brewing Co. Interiors Glasgow Drygate Brewing Co. in Glasgow’s East End has a refined industrial aesthetic housed in a two-storey warehouse built in the 1960s, the brewery comprises a restaurant, bar, roof terrace, events/gallery space, and ‘Studio Kit’ area where beer enthusiasts and would-be brewers can try their hand at brewing and even create their own brand. The new venture is a collaboration between William Bros. Brewing Co. and the award-winning Vintage gastro-pub in Leith, with exterior interventions and interiors by Graven Images. The visual identity was created by D8, who worked with graduates from Glasgow School of Art to produce artwork. Adjacent to the Tennent’s Wellpark Brewery, the oldest brewing site in Glasgow, the Drygate building had been used as a box factory, print works, bottling plant, and most recently, as office and storage space, before opening its doors to the beer-loving community. For the conversion, Graven implemented a design that concentrates on existing eccentricities of the building, bearing traces of all its previous incarnations and unique setting of the Drygate tower blocks, the Necropolis, and Tennent’s industrial-scale brewery.

Network Rail Glasgow Headquarters Interiors Glasgow In 2014, Network Rail appointed AHR to undertake the refurbishment of 151-155 St Vincent Street, their new headquarters in central Glasgow. The ÂŁ1.8 million project involved the reconfiguration and fit-out of six floors of a 1980s office block, following Network Rail's decision to relocate from their existing offices at Buchanan House and move further into Glasgow city centre. From our very first visit to St Vincent Street we were struck by the different atmospheres present as we moved through the building. This led to the realisation of the design concept, 'Earth Strata' : travelling from earth through meadows to sky at the top floor, reinforcing sustainable aspirations while fostering individual departmental identities. Our idea was to create a unique yet harmonious design to each floor, aiding the orientation of users throughout the building while creating a contemporary workplace. Natural materials, colour and tones were key in the realisation of the concept.

Collaborative Workplace Environment Interiors Edinburgh 'Nine’ is a 90,000sq.ft. speculative (BioIncubator) laboratory and office development (designed by Michael Laird Architects for Scottish Enterprise) at Edinburgh’s BioQuarter. Since its completion in 2012 the building has proven to be a commercial success with over 75 per cent of the building let and the remaining 25 per cent under negotiation. In 2013 the design team were commissioned to create a collaborative workplace environment on the second floor for a series of organisations involved in ground-breaking information handling research in the life science and health sector. The Farr Institute (in itself a consortium of seven Scottish universities and the NHS NSS), the ADRC-S and the UIPHSI now occupy 20,000 sq.ft on the top floor of the building with 135 users enjoying stunning views to the north overlooking Edinburgh’s Royal Infirmary campus. Acoustic considerations necessitated the use of baffles with a high degree of sound absorbancy to make the most of high ceilings with colours, layout and service integration all carefully co-ordinated.

Empire Cafe Interiors Glasgow The Empire Cafe was an exploration of Scotland's relationship with the North Atlantic slave trade through coffee, sugar, tea, cotton, music, visual art, academic lectures, poetry, debate, workshops, historical walks, film and literature. The project, led by an author and architect, was a temporary event/exhibition forming part of the 2014 Culture Programme as part of Glasgow's Commonwealth Games. The event, and associated working cafe, was based in the main hall and formerly redundant shop unit at the Grade A listed Briggait in Glasgow's Merchant City for 8 days in August 2014. The space was animated by a 'pop up' cafe, a temporary main stage for a programme of events and a series of bespoke pavilions/spaces for exhibiting work relating to the theme. The event attracted 4000 visitors over the course of the week. Whilst the project addressed a challenging - and important theme, this was set in a convivial and welcoming environment. The Empire Cafe served dishes relating to trade between Scotland and the Empire.

Glasgow Studio Interiors Glasgow The project comprises the relocation of jmarchitects Glasgow Studio to an empty shop front in Glasgow’s Merchant City. Uppermost is the idea of making the activity of doing architecture more explicit and evident in the context of the city. Allied to this was the notion of showcasing our own work in the shop window so that passers-by could pause , look and maybe take a little more interest in their built environment. The space has been lightly touched, exposing the original masonry walls and adding simple birch ply details. The focus is a single central desk which is presented to the street and around which the activity of the studio takes place. The shop front permits a unique opportunity to showcase the thoughts and ideas of our studio staff - a personal reflection in the guise of small exhibitions which are held monthly. It is our hoped that as this event develops it will inject new conversations and ideas into our various projects in the studio and into the consciousness of the city.

Elevator Aberdeen Interiors Bridge of Don Graven has completed the rebranding of Enterprise North East Trust and design of a £1 million state-of-the-art facility for the Aberdeen-based organisation that delivers Business Gateway services in Grampian and Tayside and incorporates the Aberdeen Centre for Entrepreneurship, The Prince’s Trust Youth Business Scotland programmes and an accelerator programme. Graven created an exciting, original and flexible working space that is home to 28 Enterprise and Business Gateway staff plus vibrant working areas for accelerator businesses. The facility was originally a typical, bland ‘shoe box’ style office with carpet, ceiling tiles and fluorescent lighting. Graven transformed it into a dynamic interior with a wedge-shaped central structure containing shared meeting spaces and equipment. The carpet was replaced with a mixture of rubber and woven polyester, and ceiling services were revealed to create height and volume. The materials palette includes folded aluminium cladding and anechoic foam with painted and upholstered seating and storage elements. At one end of the space, a circular mini-amphitheatre provides an exciting, informal space for presentations and meetings. Flexibility was key in the conception of the accelerator space, with users encouraged to arrange furniture to suit the changing requirements of each team and maximise the wide range of different technologies, types of space and digital tools available.

Glasgow Central Station Concourse Interiors Glasgow Atkins have completed a number of significant interventions within the Category A listed Glasgow Central Station. Main entrances from Union Street and the low level station have been transformed in advance of Glasgow's Commonwealth Games along with the main concourse washrooms in an attempt to elevate the quality of passenger experience within the internationally significant station building. The presence of the low level station within the upper concourse has been heightened through the introduction of tall, delicate archway structure which recalls the original decorative gateways and barriers. The significance of secondary access to Union Street has been intensified through the introduction of large format porcelain tiles which create a dialogue with the ashlar sandstone and granite of the original building. The large format gates, like the archway, feature ornate metalwork based on the motifs and symbols found in the original station environment. Together these changes aim to reduce reliance on complex signage and simplify the passenger journey.

GRAS is an Edinburgh based architecture and design studio which exists to create extra-ordinary things and places through the exploration of ideas, materials, techniques and technologies. GRAS is part of the leading conservation practice GrovesRaines Architects. Our work is driven by an intuitive, yet highly responsive approach rather than a predetermined style and we strive to achieve levels of excellence in all of our work, irrespective of project budget, client or brief. We look to push the boundaries of what is typically understood as architecture, often entering the fields of product design, graphics, audio visuals and art. We adopt an inventive but reflective attitude to design, always looking forwards but mindful of the past. Working in parallel with conservation experts we understand the significance and value of our built heritage and traditional crafts. We see quality in traditional design, materials and crafts that is often lacking in contemporary buildings: solidity, permanence, proportion, hierarchy, human scale and timelessness and we seek to explore these qualities in our contemporary work. At the same time we strongly embrace opportunities afforded by emerging technologies, materials and techniques and believe in the value of collaboration with craftsmen, artists and designers.

We have successfully delivered Housing, Business Centres, Sports Facilities, Educational and Civic Buildings. We have created a house for Alpine plants, refurbished an Edwardian Theatre, rescued a 1930’s Roadhouse and designed a Spa Hotel overlooking Ben Nevis. We have also designed the UK’s longest public bench and found time for study tours to Stockholm, Malmo, Amsterdam and Freiburg. Our architecture combines a respect for context with a commitment to create both economic and social value through contemporary buildings and places.

We are a cross-disciplinary design studio of 2D and 3D specialists; 30+ graphic and interior designers, architects, 3D visualisers and illustrators.

We adopt an inventive but reflective attitude to design, always looking forwards but mindful of the past. Working in parallel with conservation experts we understand the significance and value of our built heritage and traditional crafts. We see quality in traditional design, materials and crafts that is often lacking in contemporary buildings: solidity, permanence, proportion, hierarchy, human scale and timelessness and we seek to explore these qualities in our contemporary work. At the same time we strongly embrace opportunities afforded by emerging technologies, materials and techniques and believe in the value of collaboration with craftsmen, artists and designers.

Walker Will Rudd Davidson are a Structural and Civil Engineering practice, not just engaged in mainstream structural and civil engineering design, but also in specialisms such as temporary works design, façade engineering, conservation engineering, dispute resolution / expert witness and lead consultancy services. We reach markets as far afield as Antigua; however concentrate primarily in the UK market. We have two principle offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh, led by Brian Walker and Angus Roxburgh, supplemented by long established associated offices in Warrington and Oban. All our commissions are led by very experienced engineers with a deep understanding of all the disciplines within a design team. We like to think we have a unique approach to our work in that our interests are much wider than that of a project itself. Our strapline, ‘not just engineering’ should speak for itself. We strive to bring energy and enthusiasm to our commissions, alongside the very serious matter of a high quality delivery of service and product. We are professional, agile, broadminded, easy to deal with, ‘can do’ biased and social.
