The Vinery

GD Lodge Architects are delighted to be working with Aberdeenshire Council on a fantastic community regeneration project in Banff, Aberdeenshire. Works are due to commence on the B Listed former bothy and glasshouse in Airlie Gardens, the former walled garden to Duff House, and will see their full restoration including conservation stone and roof repairs to the bothy and hand crafted frame with new glazing to the vinery glasshouse.

The completed buildings will be used by the selected operator, Aberdeen Foyer, a charitable organisation supporting people in the NE of Scotland towards independent living, learning and work. The Vinery will provide much needed opportunities to access wellbeing support and skills training for all ages in a safe, shared space within the community. Produce from the garden and vinery will feed a small community kitchen and café located in the bothy.




All Aboard

Network Rail in collaboration with RIBA have selected a shortlist of 5 practices to develop concept designs in a programme to re-imagine the railway station of the future. Congratulations to all those who have made it to the next stage and we look forward to seeing the results.




Happy Mondays

What do you call someone who is happy on Mondays?  Retired!

Well, Happy Mondays Ken! After a lifetime’s career with the practice (43 years of service and the best part of 2 decades as Partner) you have decided that there are better things to do with your time.

It has been a pleasure working with you and thanks for everything you have done for the business. It’s been fun, in amongst the stress and responsibility….and golf! We all wish you a very long & happy retirement.

Hope to see you soon and with a greatly improved handicap.
