Coll has recently returned to ESALA to complete his part to MArch course and is working part-time in the office throughout his studies. He has a keen interest in materially rich and contextually responsive design that aims to reuse and reprogram existing structures and typologies. 

In third year at ESALA, his studio project was shortlisted for the Tiawan Residential Architecture Award (TRAA), focussing on adapting housing on a global scale in a post pandemic world. In his final year, Coll was awarded the dissertation prize and has been nominated by ESALA for the RIBA dissertation medal 2022. This thesis explored the frictions surrounding the future of St Margaret's House, a ex-administration office building located in Edinburgh, currently inhabited by Edinburgh Palette

At FLA, Coll has worked on various projects at different stages, focussing primarily on later construction stages at Athron Hill, whilst also providing various inputs on Simon Square, Pilmuir Works, and a number of other small projects. In the office, he takes responsibility in updating and editing the website and has spent time building a few models for our window.
