The Morris Building

The Morris Building
Client: St Andrews Links Trust
Architect: Archial NORR
Location: St Andrews, Fife
Year: July 2013
Award: DIA Best Public/Commercial Building Project Award 2013

The Project

The St Andrews Links Trust oversees the seven public golf courses in St Andrews, Fife, as well as the Tom Morris shop and clothing range which was dates from 1866 making it the oldest golf range in the world. With a number of high end retailers now stocking the Tom Morris merchandise the St Andrews Links Trust required a warehouse and office space that would allow them to work to their full potential. The Links Trust took their inspiration for their design specification from the rolling landscape of St Andrews links and from Tom Morris himself; as he devoted much of his life to tending the Links with a keen interest in development, sustainability and innovation. These elements were integral to the design process and Archial NORR architects took this into consideration when looking for materials to use within the build.

The Challenge

Archial NORR used the concept of the rolling links landscape to create a natural curved building which was to utilise green technologies and a palette of natural materials to minimise the environmental impact. They had to source local materials which were environmentally sound, sustainable and that would tie in with the landscape.

The Solution

Denfind Stone is only 23 miles away from St Andrews links meaning that there would be very little environmental impact transporting the stone from the quarry to the site. At Denfind stone, we have very little waste product as we try to use all of our stone in different ways. These qualities presented themselves to the project well, making Denfind Stone the perfect natural stone solution for the project.

Why Denfind Stone

Our stone is sustainable and environmentally sourced. Our stone is award winning.
