About

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 partners David Jamieson and Suzanne Ewing.
