First phase of masterplan comprising 201 affordable dwellings in New Gorbals, Glasgow City Centre, in a new layout of streets and mews settings, in keeping with historical street scales and patterns.



A neighbourhood character in a contemporary tenemental form, with a wide variety of housing types within the blocks. Exploiting the southerly aspect for sunlight and views. Enriching the interaction between dwellings and civic spaces. The new housing follows the traditional Glasgow ‘close’ model, but with a wider variety of housing types and sizes within the blocks. 1/2/3/4 bedroom apartments, maisonettes, accessible units are distributed throughout the closes, and terrace houses define the mews streets. Like a traditional tenemental 'back court', the blocks enclose landscaped communal and private gardens to provide further outdoor space. Unlike the traditional tenemental flat, the dwellings adopt more open plan settings for living, dining and kitchen spaces, and all are double aspect.


Detail Study - Balconies


Balconies replace the typical Glasgow bay window, recessed into the depths of the blocks to create sheltered outdoor spaces. All blocks were built using traditional brick cavity wall construction, affording high levels of thermal and acoustic isolation, and airtight construction.

30 Flats for Private Developer Detail Design with Powe Studio Architects, 2016 Role: Project Manager CAD Software: Revit A contemporary adaptation of historic bay-front row houses, creating a rhythm of fully glazed living room bay windows of similar scale to the historic rowhouse architecture that dominate the neighbourhood of Eckington. The brownfield site is transformed from storage and garage lots into a quality community for singles, couples and families. The building contains a mix of 1-3 bedroom flats, with a communal roof terrace, outdoor walled garden and basement parking. The existing front row house is restored and refurbished into a social space for residents with manager's flat added behind.

69 Flats for Private Developer. Construction Information with Architects, 2016 Role: Residential Design Lead CAD Software: Revit



An urban mixed use 9 story development on a brownfield town centre site currently used as an open carpark, that will also provide a new public square and home for the City Market. The building contains retail and event spaces on the ground floor with offices above, and the upper half of the building contains 69 flats, a mixture of 1-2-3 bedroom dwellings. Amenities include a communal rooftop garden terrace and lounge, generous private balconies and basement parking.



28 Flats for Loretto Housing Association. Completed project with Page\Park Architects, 2008 Role: Project Assistant. CAD Software: Vectorworks A contemporary version of traditional mill housing, providing a protective community environment for social and special needs housing. The site lies on the banks of the Black Cart River and was home to one of Johnstone's many cotton mills. Disused for decades, this brownfield site has been transformed into a series of simple gabled blocks evoking workers housing. The uniformity of the blocks' exteriors mask the variety of flat types, from single bedroom flats to two/three bedroom terraces and maisonettes. The blocks are tightly laid out around vennels, courts and gardens, defining the hierarchy of public to private spaces while controlling and encouraging views between the blocks to the open fields beyond.



36 Flats for Loretto Housing Association. Completed project with Page\Park Architects, 2007 Role: Project Assistant CAD Software: Vectorworks This development comprises two separate blocks of housing on a brownfield site sitting between two strong rows of red sandstone tenements on a major arterial route in and out of Glasgow. The previously empty site between the blocks framed a view to the river and its great importance to the industrial heritage of the city. The design retained that relationship by creating two separate blocks, maintaining a visual connection to the river and strengthening the physical connection by providing communal amenity space within.

Church Conversion to Mixed Use Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent with Page\Park Architects, 2010 Role: Project Architect CAD Software: Vectorworks Conversion of the church and hall commercial, residential and worship uses.


This project deals with how a listed at-risk place of worship might be given a new life to ensure a sustainable future, while allowing the congregation to continue to worship in part of the building. An assessment of signifcance of the building was completed in support of a design statement detailing the proposals, in which a key aim is to minimise alterations to the external fabric. The building consists of two main volumes. It was proposed to move the main worship area into the Hall, allowing the main Sanctuary to be converted into commercial and residential uses. By using a mixture of studio flats and maisonette flats, existing window openings are respected and unaltered. New interiors would re-use materials and joinerywork from the existing Sanctuary.



New-build 10,000sqm office Architects, 2011 Role: Project Architect CAD Software: Vectorworks



Situated on a former railway goods yard, the new office was part of the first phase of a longstanding masterplan to revitalise a former industrial area subject to decline and disuse since WWII. The masterplan area was the largest derelict city centre site in the UK. The office is situated at the northwest corner, at the historic intersection of High Street and Duke Street, the focal connection back to the edge of activity, and on an intersection between two main arterial routes within the city centre. The project grew to include the fit-out for Glasgow City Council and its Tomorrow's Office programme.



A number of urban approaches are employed such as retention of the existing former goods yard wall to Duke Street and the use of its proportional system to influence and link the character of the office building and its neighbouring buildings in future phases. Enhanced fabric performance and high levels of airtightness, high efficiency air source heat pumps and lighting and intelligent systems controls contributed to the office building achieving a BREEAM Excellent rating, the first speculative office in Scotland to achieve this rating.

Briefing Diagram


Conversion of historic school to offices Briefing and Feasibility for CJMW Architects, 2017 Role: Freelance Design Consultant CAD Software: Revit Originally built as a public school in 1927, this building has been underused as a maintenance facility for the last ten years. It is proposed to house the school board offices to give the building a more active use. The building consisted of large open volumes, classrooms, auditorium and gymnasium, connected by dark corridors leading to a number of subdivided service spaces. The challenge was adapting the large open spaces into more cellular offices, and bringing light into the circulation routes. The school board's needs were loosely defined, so a briefing exercise was first carried out to better understand the client's requirements.



4,000sqm Office for EDI Group Developed and Technical Design with Page\Park Architects, 2009 Role: Project Architect CAD Software: Vectorworks Phase 2 of a 5-phase masterplan for a speculative office development, which re-imagines the out-oftown business park. The masterplan considers making a place for people by organising the buildings as a campus and giving primacy to landscape over car parking. The buildings radiate from a central courtyard that is covered by a canopy linking the six buildings. The car parking is situated at the rear of the site.
