We are thrilled that our project to transform a B-Listed beach house in Elie has recently been granted Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent. The project will see a pair of highly contemporary, copper and glass extensions added, as well as significant rationalisation of the interior, to create dining, living and kitchen spaces that luxuriate in the site's beach-front location. We look forward to developing technical designs over the coming months.
We are delighted for the people of Camuscross and Duisdale on the Isle of Skye, as they have now received confirmation of their £712,000 funding pot from Coastal Communities Fund. This is the last piece of the puzzle that will now allow this special building to slowly start appearing out of what is currently only an innocuous area of boggy land.

We are thrilled to announce that WT Architecture have been appointed by Network Rail as Architects on the team to develop detailed design proposals for the Forth Bridge Experience. Our team will be led by world-renowned Engineers, Arup, with The Paul Hogarth Company as Landscape Architects, and Turner & Townsend as Quantity Surveyors.
Last year we worked with Network Rail to develop the brief for new visitor facilities and access to the Forth Bridge, coming up with some very broad concept proposals, an example of which is featured in the image above. We are delighted to receive this new commission, which will see us take the project through to Planning and Listed Building application stage. The Forth Bridge Experience will consist of a Visitor Centre in North Queensferry beneath the Fife Tower, with hoist access to the top of the Bridge, and a Reception Centre for a Bridge Walk from South Queensferry.

A few years ago, we produced designs to convert this abandoned Victorian fort with the rather unforgettable address of No.1 , The Thames. Great to see this project thrust back into the limelight this week after the fort in the Thames estuary was put on the market! So now you too have to opportunity to purchase your very own sea fort, for the princely sum of £500,000.

WT Architecture have developed designs for a new extension to a blackhouse on a beach on the Isle of Tiree. The form of the building echoes the traditional heavy black roofs found on the island. The design frames the views to the distant islands over the Sound of Gunna.
Great news as the Camuscross and Duisdale community on the Isle of Skye receive a grant from the Lottery for the proposed Community Hub project. WT Architecture look forward to developing the detailed technical designs for this project alongside the other design team members in the coming months.
