Vacancy: Part I Architectural Assistant

WT Architecture is looking for a talented and enthusiastic Part I architecture student to join our busy practice in early 2018.

Our work is overtly contemporary but engages directly with the historic urban and sensitive landscape settings in which we regularly work. Current projects include a wide mix of bespoke private houses and extensions, independent commercial enterprises, grass-roots community schemes, and high-profile public buildings.

The position requires the ability to work effectively as a team member in a fast-paced environment, assisting project architects on active projects as well as taking responsibility for general office administration.

Candidates should be highly computer literate and be proficient in digital design packages including 2D CAD, Photoshop and InDesign, SketchUp and/ or other 3D modelling systems. Some experience working with 3D CAD (BIM) platforms such as Archicad or Revit would be preferable.

Please send CVs and sample portfolios to:

New project - East Lothian

IMG_5271.jpg

A flood of new projects have appeared in the start of 2017, the largest amongst them being an opportunity to redevelop a vast ruined steading complex in East Lothian. We are delighted to have been appointed as Architects and lead consultants on this project, which will seek to bring a mix of new private and public uses to this stunning but neglected building.

 
 

Scaffolding down at Skye Hub

Its wonderful to see the building stripped of its shroud of scaffolding, revealing the architecture beneath. The low winter light is now able to pour into the interior, which is now decorated ready for floor finishes and furniture to be installed.

Forth Bridge Experience - new image released

The Forth Bridge Experience has released one of our previously unseen images of our proposals for the South Queensferry Bridge Walk building. The images were released following pressure in the media from Fife Council on Network Rail to provide assurances that delivering the project was still a priority. There is a tangible sense of enthusiasm building in the media and online for more information on how this remarkable project can happen. If you too want to see this vision become a reality, the Facebook page of the Forth Bridge Experience is a great way to stay up to date and to voice your views.

 
 

Publication Launch

We are proud to see two of our completed projects, Newhaven and Wormit extensions in Edinburgh, featured in a new publication from RIBA on inspirational renovation projects. Author, Richard Wilcock, has brought together a host of cutting-edge projects that celebrate contemporary interventions into existing buildings.

Summary from RIBA Publishing : 

"Thirty two fully-illustrated case studies have been selected to show the latest in design excellence, innovation in construction techniques and the ability of the interventions to achieve energy-savings and ecological improvements. Many of the houses are listed or in conservation areas and the schemes demonstrate how the most contemporary design can sit harmoniously alongside historic buildings and also transform traditional cellular layouts into open plan kitchen/dining/living spaces suitable for contemporary lifestyles.

The book is inspiring and technically detailed, highlighting advances in technology and building product development, including the latest methods to improve the energy efficiency of our traditional housing stock."

The book is available to purchase in hardback from RIBA Bookshops and other fine architectural bookstores everywhere. Click here to view an extract.
