Oliver Chapman Architects has been awarded two new commissions - a new church hall at Dundee Central Baptist Church, and the masterplanning and design of a £1.2m supported housing project at Duns, Berwickshire.

Five new Dutch factory-made houses have been built in Ballater, Aberdeenshire. The three-bedroom homes, the first of their kind in the UK, are for Tenants First Housing Co-operative and can be built in less than three months.

The work of architect Basil Spence is to go on public display at the Dean Gallery in 2007. Original designs, drawings and sketches will be among the archive material going on show. The work will be provided by the RCAHMS.

Allan Murray Architects is set to transform an eyesore office block, Croythorn House in Edinburgh’s Ravelston Terrace, into 60 luxury flats. The £10m development, for Kilmartin and Sundial Properties, could see the building re-clad with a glass envelope. The scheme is currently in for planning, and if permission is granted, work could start as soon as tenants VisitScotland move out of the building in May this year.
