7N Architects emerges from the ashes of Shuttleworth’s Scottish office
Seven former members of Make’s Edinburgh studio have announced the formation of their new firm, 7N Architects.
The firm, led by Ewan Anderson, has inherited two major projects from Make - a new university campus for the Highlands and Islands and Westfield, a 193 dwelling mixed use development for Dunedin Canmore Housing Association in Edinburgh.
BD revealed that Make had closed its Edinburgh arm in December amid 30 redundancies across the company.
“It’s a very rough time with clients and friends getting laid off so there is an element of fear” Anderson told BD. “But we’ve come back after Christmas and have two projects to do, so we’re ok for now.
“Make has been very supportive.
“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.”
Anderson’s team has previously worked on projects such as the Royal Highland Showground, the former Edinburgh Odeon, Inverness Airport Business Park and Speirs Locks in Glasgow, which are now being handled by Make.
