D2 obtained Planning approval for a new build facility in a busy Town Centre as part of the ongoing Town Redevelopment proposals. We worked closely with the client and the planning department to ensure we delivered a proposal that featured high quality materials, contemporary design and made use of a very awkward site whilst remaining sympathetic to the local vernacular.
D2 were engaged to design a five house residential development in the local mining town of Newtongrange. The design of the house types within the development site were born from the traditional mining cottage ethos. The design reflects the scale and form of the traditional mining cottages whilst predominantly incorporating the use of more modern material finishes such as smooth cement render, timber cladding and aluclad doors and windows to breathe an element of modernity into the finished house types.
D2 were engaged to design a residential housing development on the site of an agricultural farm building complex on the outskirts of Edinburgh. Over the years the existing structures had fallen into a significant state of disrepair and required to be demolished. The proposed development consisted of nine new build three bedroom houses and the retention and conversion of one of the farm buildings into two houses.
D2 have undertaken a wealth of projects for recognised international commercial restaurant/café franchises throughout Scotland and further afield. This Ice cream parlour in the old town of Edinburgh represents a small sample of the D2 portfolio.
D2 were commissioned to design the conversion of an existing B listed garage building located within a mews street in the Marchmont area of Edinburgh.
D2 were engaged to design the full reconfiguration of a former sandwich shop in the bustling Lothian Road Area of Edinburgh city centre and form a new traditional fish and chip restaurant.
The proposals incorporated a new state of the art cooking range and servery within the front restaurant area that caters for both sit in diners and those wishing to utilise the takeaway option.
The rear quarters of the premises house the new and improved kitchen layout with new sanitary facilities for patron use. Works were completed in early 2018.
D2 were engaged by the Church of Scotland to investigate numerous options pertaining to one for their ageing community church hall facilities which was experiencing significant subsidence within a particular area of the building. The three options comprised of the removal of predominantly affected section of the building and construction of a new extension to incorporate new modern facilities. The second option was to remove the affected section of the building and construct independent modular facilities adjacent to the main building
Haigs Bar & Restaurant was originally constructed as a tavern in the 18th Century and during the course of its lengthy life span it has predominantly been utilised as a Tavern with no real historical record of this ever proving to the contrary. D2 were engaged to produce designs for a much improved high-end bar & restaurant facility. This resulted in the demolition of the existing building and construction of a new two storey modern facility to incorporate a greatly increased restaurant space and increased welfare facilities along with a state of the art Kitchen.
D2 were engaged to design a hot-desk office facility in Edinburgh within a disused former print works. The design included numerous hot desk areas, a reception area, a one to one room, Kitchen facilities and improved sanitary provisions.
The facility provides valuable desk and space hire for anyone seeking workspace at short notice, be it travelling business workers or locals alike. Each workspace also offers high-speed internet connection, printing facilities and complimentary tea, coffee and toast for all users.
The brief for this project was to create a £1.2m manufacturing, research and development and storage facility for a multi national client.
This facility included numerous manufacturing rooms, staff facilities, research and development rooms and delivery facilities to cater for the client’s ever expanding business.
