Coarum Communication Workshop

HLA were the hosts for the third Workshop in Edinburgh Architecture Association’s 'Coarum' series, focussing on Communication. 
Speakers included Gail Turpin of Gail Turpin Design on ‘The Importance of Image and Visual Communication’, Astrid Johnston of AST + RED website design on ‘Instillation Distillation- What do you want to say?’ and Andy Summers of Architecture Fringe on ’The Mosaic of Architectural Culture in Scotland’.
 
The talks were informative and engaging, looking from many different angles at how architecture is promoted in Scotland, engendering much discussion (and digression) during the Q&A, with useful outcomes and feedback for the Coarum series. 
 
HLA would like to thank our inspirational speakers and everyone who attended for making the evening a success.

Carpenter Oak Trip

HLA had a great time at Carpenter Oak's 'Craft and Design of Timber Framing' talk at their workshop in Angus. This was an opportunity for us to gain a greater understanding of the production and design possibilities of traditional timber framed buildings.

Borders Planning Granted

HLA are delighted to have received planning permission for a large family home in the Scottish Borders. The property is currently a ruin, having served as a farm house and stable block until the 1930's. The new home will feature an indoor pool, private sheltered courtyard garden, and will focus on views across the surrounding landscape.

River Garden Planning

HLA are pleased to announce that planning permission has been granted for the river garden project at Auchincruive Estate, South Ayrshire for the charity Independence from Drugs and Alcohol Scotland.

 

This ambitious project sees the creation of a residential training and social enterprise development centre for people in the early stages of recovery from addiction. The gardens provide a beautiful public destination, which is planned to include cafe, plant nursery, shop and a number of other social enterprises. Residential accommodation is also provided for up to thirty long term residents.

 

HLA have very much enjoyed working with IFDAS on the first stage, and look forward to seeing the River Garden project grow and flourish.
