Today’s #TBT is a snap of the gargoyle on the terrace at Richard Murphy’s own house in Hart St in the Edinburgh New Town from which all the roof’s rainwater flows on its way to collection tanks in the basement. The cast concrete wall and glazed tiles are an exact reproduction of those in the garden of the Querini Stampalia in Venice built in 1963 by Carlo Scarpa. The house won the “RIBA house of the year” in 2016 and was featured on Channel 4. #architect #architecture #design #archilovers #architecturelovers #designers #architecturephotography #homedesign #home #granddesigns #art #style #travel #architectural #travelling #travelblog #RIAS #RIBA #RIBAHouseoftheyear #steel #homes #contemporaryhouse #stone #gold #stone #concrete #water #waterfeature #garden #gardendesign #TBT

Today’s #TBT is of Old See House Mental Health Facility in Belfast, completed in 2014. The revolutionary facility brings together three functions never before co-located; Consulting, a Day Centre offering multiple forms of engagement and therapy, and short-stay residential accommodation offering anything from a night up to two weeks respite. The project was a collaboration with RPP Architects from Belfast, with whom we have also just completed an 80 bed acute mental health hospital at Belfast City Hospital. #RIBAAwards #RIBAAwards2015 #ArchitetcureAwards #Belfast #DesignAwards #Architecture #ArchitecturePhotography #Design #brick #foyer #zinc #nightshot #exposedbrick #designformentalhealth #travel #granddesigns

A #TBT to 1999 when we completed the DCA [Dundee Contemporary Arts], a multifunction art hub with galleries, cinema, restaurant, bar and art studios. It’s still a pleasure to return, and to see the current investment and growth in the Arts in Dundee.

A look at the kitchen space within a courtyard home we recently completed for downsizing clients in #Edinburgh This hidden house was built within the high garden walls of an existing villa, and is built around a private courtyard in the center of the plan. A south facing rooflight spanning the full width of the house floods the main living area with light.

Its an award also recognising Fife Council’s dogged persistence with their vision for the building through the ups and down s of the development of the building a fact itself recognised when they were given earlier this year the client of the year award.
