About us –

Edinburgh Architecture Website, Scotland

post updated 4 April 2024






The website is run by Adrian Welch and Isabelle Lomholt.

The site was set up in 2000 and is one of the oldest architecture websites in the world, probably the oldest. The platform promotes good quality architecture, sometimes quite small properties that show care or innovation.

We also feature the main property developments in the Scottish capital city. These are typically large retail centres, transport hubs, sporting arenas and office complexes.

We feature news, events, awards, jobs and books, but the primary aim is to build a useful architectural resource for both locals and visitors to this world-famous city.
