Zone Architects

ZONE Architects is an award-winning design studio based in Edinburgh. With a client-centred approach we deliver buildings to the highest standards of design, detail and delivery. All our projects are based on fresh thinking and sensitivity to their location and context, we are great communicators and we always seek to add value to your proposals.

We work across a range of scales from landscape to urbanism to new individual buildings and the imaginative re-use and alterations to existing buildings. We are familiar with the latest building conservation practice having worked with listed buildings of all periods.

We adopt a holistic approach to sustainability and energy management which is a central issue from the beginning of the design process. This means that we design buildings to be energy efficient in a passive manner based on site layout, orientation, construction and insulation methods, and the building products selected.

ZONE Architects is run by directors David Jamieson and Suzanne Ewing.

New build houses

ZONE Architects has developed a portfolio of exceptional one-off new houses. Many of these are located in sensitive settings where constraints have dictated a considered design approach. These houses are different in style, but share an ambition to develop a contemporary architecture which sits comfortably in its particular context.

We consider constructing a home as one of the most important commissions an architect can receive. The house tends to be the scene of the most significant and memorable events of our lives, where we are born, grow up and have our most intimate experiences. Our aim is to work with your brief and design a delightful place to live, making the most of your setting, your budget, and your aspirations.

There is a considered effort to create particular atmospheres through the manipulation of light and volume. A common theme is the thoughtful manipulation of specific building materials and a preoccupation that all the details are of equal importance.
