The Sand House - site start

IMG_6902.JPG

We are delighted to see works starting on The Sand House project this month! A design was developed with the clients to make the most of northern light and open up the kitchen to the private, leafy garden beyond. In order to achieve this we need to demolish the existing side extension, carry out substantial internal alterations and built a new extension in the garden.

This is one of our favourite little projects and we are very happy to be working with the wonderful Wojciech Eisler and the construction team at Green Olive too!

If you would like to stay updated with progress follow our on site blog.

 

Open Close

Open Close is a temporary art installation project led by a collaborative team of artists, designers and architects. The project was conceived as a way of demonstrating how our smaller urban spaces can become containers for more joy, wellbeing, stimulation and play and the role that contemporary art and architecture can play in this transformation. Using sound, light, sculpture, design and visual art, Open Close will see interventions large and small, overt and subtle scattered across Carrubbers Close, Chalmers Close and Trunks Close off Edinburgh's Royal Mile.

The installation is part of Edinburgh’s Architecture Fringe Festival, and is a free event which will run from 14th July - 11th August 2017.

WT Architecture are very proud to have several friends and colleagues represented within the Open Close Collective; a collaborative group of artists, architects, academics and web developers united by an interest in how we can make better creative use of the small spaces in our cities.

Visit the Open Close website to find out more about the project, and the collective of people and organisations involved.
