BUILD Architecture Awards 2022

Were over the moon to receive the news that we have been named as “Best Progressive Design Practice” in Scotland, in the Build Architecture Awards 2022

Ashiestiel Planning Submitted

Our Ashiestiel project takes the form of a large scale extension to an existing cottage with amazing views of the tweed valley + beyond. The extension takes a traditional form with recessed balcony to the 1st floor ensuring solar control + low impact on the surrounding area. Complimented by natural stone + thin board larch ensure a high quality finish that blends with its surroundings #tweedvalley #scottishborders #scottisharchitecture #larch #naturalstone #stuartdavidsonarchitecture

Swinside Planning Submitted

It’s been a busy time in the studio, here are visualizations of our swinside project which has just been submitted for planning.
A proposed holiday let unit which will be created as a forced earth dwelling partly formed by reclaimed shipping containers, with hidden roof terrace. Set into a former stone quarry in the Scottish Borders, the roof is formed as a banked green roof to blend the skyline + remove any visual impact, complimented with natural stone + dark detailing externally + polished concrete floors with birch plywood internally #forcedearth #greenroof #naturalstone #shippingcontainers #roofterrace #view #viewtodiefor #holidaylet #contemporaryarchitecture #urbanrealm #buildit #homescotland #scottishborders #jedburgh #stuartdavidsonarchitecture #brightlightmarketing
