Sutherland Hussey Architects (SHA) have recently won an architectural competition to design a new housing development in St Andrews for Eastacre Investments.

The West Burn Lane site, located in the heart of the university town adjacent to the School of Psychology and Bute Medical Building, is an important part of the Rigg structure of the medieval plan.

An Turas Review – Excerpts:

Over local trout I asked Brian about the commissioning of An Turas. Curiously it started with a meeting in Aberdeen and was to open for the Millennium. The two Charlie’s (Sutherland & Hussey) were engaged with Jake Harvey and a rigorous selection process set up to appoint the other artists.

Since the team came up with the diagram, Calmac have built what Charlie Sutherland calls the ‘Pizza Hut’. This pyramidal-roofed box houses ferry ‘check-in’. Apparently it was never discussed with SHA. It also happens to block views of the shelter from the start of the pier, is rather ugly and spoils photos from the west to boot.

One of the artists overheard locals calling it ‘two walls and a telephone box with no phone’ and others suggested the shelter could be used for a whole range of rather tawdry pursuits. The two Charlie’s call it ‘Hector’s House’ after a local tramp said to frequent its pleasures. These interpretations assist in building up an idea of how the building has been understood and how it may be used. [Adrian Welch]
