Seventh heaven

Seventh heaven
Seven members of Make’s former Edinburgh studio formed their own practice, 7N Architects, at the beginning of January.

Led by Ewan Anderson the practice has already secured several long term projects including Inverness Campus for Inverness College and Westfield, a mixed use development for Dunedin Canmore Housing Association.

Both projects have been inherited from Make who have been supportive of the new venture.

Ewan Anderson is positive about the challenge of starting up a new business in difficult times.

“We know that it is a difficult time to be setting up a new business but we are off to a good start with the projects that we have already secured and, being a start up, we have a sharp eye on our costs and are not encumbered by any long term commitments. We’ve a very focussed team, who have that extra level of commitment from being partners in the practice. There has been a tremendous level of support from clients, and people that are keen to work with us, who have all got behind the idea of creating something positive in the current climate.

In many ways it is a good time to be starting up as a lot of established certainties are no more. Many people are looking to rethink how they do things so there are opportunities out there for fresh ideas and approaches.

It certainly won’t be an easy ride this year, for us or anyone else, but it will be an exciting one.”
