Wester Coates Gardens – 12 Mar 2012 – private house
The Old Schoolyard is a new villa in a conservation area just west of Edinburgh’s city centre. The site is an undeveloped plot within an area of grand villas laid out in the early 1900s. The plot had previously been a garden and tennis court before becoming a playground attached to the neighbouring house which had been used as a private school. Zone Architects converted this to three flats in 2009.

Planning consent has been granted for a new house in rural West Lothian designed by Zone Architects. This is the first under its ‘exceptional’ house in the countryside policy which allows buildings of outstanding design to be built in open countryside. The design of the house explores issues of the modern vernacular in rural Scottish architecture.

Murrayfield Avenue House– private house
This new family house is in a residential area on the west of Edinburgh’s city centre. The site has been created from a portion of garden of an existing listed Victorian detached house. The proposal by zone architects was for a new sandstone villa which aimed to be at least as good as its Victorian neighbours but with a contemporary character. The new house terminates a terrace of semi-detached Victorian villas.

Zone Architects Studio
This Edinburgh architectural practice have recently moved into a purpose built office/studio created on leftover embankment land. The design of the building explores the industrial and domestic of this part of nineteenth century Edinburgh. The story of the building’s design and construction will be shown as part of an exploration of spaces of design: What is a good space to design in? How does a workspace for design fit with the city?
