Works Complete at Royal Conservatoire of Scotland

HLA were pleased to attend the formal opening of new practice rooms at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland yesterday. The new practice rooms have already proved popular, and initial feedback from staff and students has been very positive.

 

HLA have very much enjoyed working with the Royal Conservatoire and the project team and hope that their new Creative Campus is an asset to this lively and thriving institution.

 

The opening has been covered by both the BBC and The Herald.

 

Planning permission for Loch Lubnaig house and swimming pool

HLA are delighted to announce that full Planning permission has been granted for a wide ranging set of proposals to an existing dwelling house & former agricultural settlement on the banks of Loch Lubnaig, in the National Park of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. 
 
The approval includes for a new ancillary dwelling house, the extension and renovation of an existing Victorian house and a new contemporary swimming pool building, alongside an extensive landscaping strategy. A palette of traditional and contemporary materials, including brick, timber, red tin, natural stone and shuttered concrete has been employed to help restore the site to a condition fit for family use. A new ground source heat pump system will provide power to the site. 
 
Construction is expected to commence on site in the Summer of 2016. 
 
 

Planning Permission in Belhaven

We are delighted to have received planning permission for a new build house in Belhaven, East Lothian.

 

The house will sit at the rear of a long plot with a narrow plan to nestle into the shape of the site. It is split into two main components separated by a modest entrance courtyard. The walls will be clad in brick to match neighbouring buildings, and timber cladding left untreated to grey gradually and blend into the leafy garden surroundings.

 

Proposal in Teddington

Edinburgh based Helen Lucas Architects have produced a computer model of a proposal in the London Borough of Richmond. A series of small additions are proposed to a Grade II Listed house.

 

The priorities are to increase the natural light and flow of spaces in this historic property that was badly bombed during the war. The high quality materials specified can be seen in this computer generated image produced at HLA. Painted brickwork, zinc roofing and large areas of glazing continue the palette and details established by the main house.

 

Helen Lucas Architects are able to produce computer generated or physical cardboardmodels as a design tool or representation of a proposed scheme for their clients.
