7N Architects : Start Up Announcement

Seven former members of Make’s Edinburgh studio have formed their own practice 7N Architects which was established at the beginning of January.

7N Architects

The new practice has already secured several long-term projects including Inverness Campus, the new university campus for the Highlands and Islands, and Westfield, a 193 dwelling mixed use development for Dunedin Canmore Housing Association in Edinburgh which is due to start on site later this year. Both projects have been inherited from Make who have been supportive of the new venture.

The team, led by Ewan Anderson, have worked together for a number of years most recently on projects such as the Royal Highland Showground, the former Edinburgh Odeon, Inverness Airport Business Park and Speirs Locks in Glasgow.

Ewan Anderson is positive about the challenge of starting up a new business in difficult times.

“We know that it is a difficult time to be setting up a new business but we are off to a good start with the projects that we have already secured and, being a start up, we have a sharp eye on our costs and are not encumbered by any long-term commitments. We’ve a very focussed team, who have that extra level of commitment from being partners in the practice. There has been a tremendous level of support from clients, and people that are keen to work with us, who have all got behind the idea of creating something positive in the current climate.

In many ways it is a good time to be starting up as a lot of established certainties are no more. Many people are looking to rethink how they do things so there are opportunities out there for fresh ideas and approaches.

It certainly won’t be an easy ride this year, for us or anyone else, but it will be an exciting one.”
