Historic Sustainable Architecture

Historic • Sustainable • Architecture

We strive to create architecture that improves the quality and beauty of our built environment in the most sustainable way possible, for the benefit of all. 

We are an architectural practice based in Leith, Edinburgh specialising in building conservation and sustainable design. With over 25 years of experience, the practice undertakes a range of projects from housing and schools through to museums and galleries. 

The studio has considerable experience in the survey, repair, maintenance and adaptation of historic buildings and the preparation of conservation management plans for historic places. 

We are passionate about the principles and practice of sustainable, low-energy, low-carbon design and construction. In each project we encourage our clients to set robust environmental targets. Energy efficiency will reduce the running costs of the building significantly and is key in establishing a building’s long-term viability. 

The studio has considerable experience in developing energy efficient solutions in existing and new buildings and seek to consider sustainability at all stages of any project, no matter the scale. 

We are able to offer Passivhaus design, BREEAM advice and in-house Building Standards Energy Certification
