Construction is now well underway on our Holyrood Distillery project with ISG Construction, Blyth and Blyth, Cubit3D and David Adamson & Partners.

A major milestone was reached this month with the installation of the wash and spirit stills. These have been fabricated by Speyside Copper in Moray and will form the heart of the completed project.

The project involves the adaption and extension of a Category B listed 19th century railway building in the St Leonard’s area of Edinburgh. Our blog entry provides an interesting introduction to site’s historic association with industry and distilling.

The project is scheduled for completion in Summer 2019.

Our Work - In May, 7N signed the Architect’s Declare open letter which has been signed by over 625 architectural practices. Signing the Architect’s Declare letter involves endorsing eleven ‘pledges’ which range from advocacy and raising awareness of climate and biodiversity emergencies, to significant changes in working practices around carbon modelling, resource use and knowledge sharing. Like many others, we have turned the lens on the operations of our practice and our projects to better understand where we can make a real difference and how meaningful changes can be advocated and realised. Our research will be shared in a sustainability focused blog series to document this journey, but to mark today’s day of climate action we’re offering some initial findings along with links to information others may find useful and interesting ; to read the full article, visit our Journal page - link in bio.

It’s been four years since 7N first visited Engine Shed site with the excitement and anticipation of a new project. This week the @holyrooddistillery team celebrated the first whisky pouring from an Edinburgh still in over 100 years. We wanted to take the opportunity to reflect on the transformation, and say congratulations to all involved. Cheers! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Swipe to see how things have changed, and read more about the history of the site on our journal (link in bio). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo by @zacandzac
