Who are the best Architects in Inverness and Ross-shire.
If you have a new build project or an extension or loft conversion project in mind then you are no doubt looking for a good architect or architectural technologist.
Over the past few years I have been involved in a lot of projects all over the Highlands not just locally in Dingwall or Inverness. I have worked over on the west coast in and around Ullapool Gairloch and Lochinver especially. I have worked with many architects in the area, it is good to have competition! so I’m more than happy to talk about some of my main competition in Inverness and the Highlands.
Please note that we are not recommending these companies as such ………. but rather we are making you aware of some of my competitors in the area and what their strengths are. It could be that these firms may provide you with a better fit !
Colin Armstrong Architect.
Colin Armstrong has probably the biggest private architectural office in the highlands and has produced many interesting projects. They work on commercial work and large residential schemes. They were one of the first architectural firms to utilise Revit in their office a 3-D design tool.
Bracewell Stirling specialize in designing housing schemes throughout Scotland for both private and social housing market. They also are involved in large commercial projects such as business parks supermarkets hotels and leisure and medical facilities.
Mark Hornby a local architectural technologist based in Inverness has produced some stunning residential one off builds he was voted best contemporary residential architectural practice in the highlands as voted by build magazine 2019. Highland architecture I’m glad to assist MRH by carrying out energy (sap calculations) for their new build houses.
Douglas Murray Architect
Douglas Murray is an eco architect and a member of SEDA.
Douglas has designed his own circular house in Kinellan, Strathpeffer as well as others across the highlands. Douglas has championed heating systems with renewable sources such as pellet boilers and other sustainable systems. If you have a project that you want to use sustainable materials in your build then Douglas Murray would be a good match for you.
If your project is in Tain – then consider using Duncan at Blueprint Architecture. Duncan has recently qualified as a Passive house designer. Passive houses are one of the most energy-efficient design standards available to new houses. In 20 years time all new house will probably be built to this standard. If this is the type of house that you want to construct – then you will need a Passive Haus designer – and Duncan will fit the bill perfectly.
