Partial demolition of existing retail unit, formation of smaller food retail unit and erection of 11 new build flats with associated parking.
A new build residential flatted development that maximises the potential of the site whilst remaining in-keeping and within the scale of the existing streetscape. The pitched roof and accentuated dormer windows make reference to the surrounding residential buildings. Whilst the use of a blended buff brick and dark grey cedral cladding provides a modern take on the local architecture.
The project involved the partial demolition and remodelling of the old McKenzies public house in Davidson Main Edinburgh.
The change of use was from public house to office and residential accommodation, alterations to existing buildings and erection of new residential development with associated landscaping.
The alterations to the existing building were carried out to form an office on the ground floor and a residential flat at first floor level.
The new build two storey building provides 4 main door flats with associated external works.
McLaren Murdoch & Hamilton Architects Edinburgh office is moving to Balgreen Road on 26th August 2019. With the help of Eycon Ltd, we have completed our fit-out of the new premises ahead of programme and within our budget.
The existing Print Shop was in desperate need of some TLC and has been stripped back, re-wired, plastered and new flooring provided throughout. The existing ceiling tiles were removed to expose the high soffit above and new Hacel Infinitas lights installed to provide a contemporary and striking office environment. The herringbone flooring provides a soft finish which also helps balance the unusual shape of rooms and angled walls.
The new space will provide purpose-built office accommodation for our staff and bring in a new chapter of the practices history.
A major dealership relocation for the client group’s Mercedes-Benz franchise, the project involved the construction of a large new facility incorporating the brand’s new corporate identity standards, situated in the expanding Kinnaird South commercial zone on Edinburgh’s south-east fringe.
MMH were appointed as architect and lead consultant from inception to completion under a traditional form of contract. We also undertook the Principal Designer role under CDM 2015.
The development comprises a striking new double-height 13 car showroom with twin handover bays, 12 bay workshop with MOT bay, high-quality customer and staff facilities plus detached wet valet building and external parking and display areas.
Highly prominent from the nearby A1 entering Edinburgh from the south, the new dealership has become a distinctive landmark.
A landmark new JLR dealership and headquarters for Donnelly Group.
Spread over three storeys on a prominent hillside site on the main A29 road into Dungannon, the new-build dealership is the largest in Northern Ireland and our biggest completed JLR project to date.
The building comprises a generous 16-car showroom with 16-bay workshop, fully-enclosed drive-in service lanes and extensive supporting facilities at ground floor level. Below this a large valet shop and parts store are cut into the hillside, taking advantage of the site's topography, while above at first floor level a new high-specification headquarters suite for the Donnelly Group has been formed, replacing cramped and outdated existing accommodation.
This project exemplifies Jaguar Land Rover's ARCH corporate identity and provides a striking showpiece facility for the brands in Northern Ireland.
