Loader Monteith’s studio highlights from 2022

As the year draws to a close, we’d like to thank our clients, collaborators and our team for a fantastic 2022. This year has seen the practice awarded a number of new projects and accolades, grow in numbers, connect with new collaborators, and feature in a host of publications in the UK and internationally.


We started the year with two Directors, and are pleased to have added our longest serving member, Iain King to the practice leadership. Architect Catriona MacDonald and Architectural Assistant Eireann Ianetta-MacKay also joined us in 2022, rounding out our talented team. A huge congratulations goes to go to Louis Wiszniewski for passing his part 3 examination to become a fully qualified architect.


Across our projects, we’re thrilled to have broken ground on an sustainable, vocational learning centre in Edinburgh, completed low-energy new build homes, our first mixed-use rural development, and have been appointed to the conservation of one of Scotland’s most significant properties, the Jenners Building in Edinburgh. Our work has ventured south to residential projects in Manchester and the Midlands, and we’ve wholeheartedly enjoyed working with London-based Caruso St John on a Cultural Centre proposal for the Crichton Estate.


Elsewhere, it has been a highlight to see our work recognised by the Royal Institute of British Architects as a National Award winner, and be shortlisted for both the Manser Medal and Andrew Doolan Prizes for two of our projects, Ceangal House and High Sunderland. We have also enjoyed spotting features in publications we have long admired including Elle Decoration, Enki, Wallpaper, and Dezeen.


Reflecting on 2022, we are extremely proud of our clients, and our team. Thank you for joining us this year, we wish you a restful holiday break.
