Architectural Services

MLA are currently engaged by our existing clients on a wide range of projects, and we are excited by the opportunity to work with new clients on projects of any scale, complexity, or type, including residential projects, historic building conversions, public and commercial office refurbishments. We take a collaborative approach where the overarching architectural ambition is to create beautiful and sustainable spaces, that will enhance the lives of its occupants, visitors, and the wider community.

In the practice of Architecture today, there are ever increasing regulatory demands within the Planning System, Building Regulations, Health and Safety environment, Carbon reduction and changing procurement routes. There are also significant constraints with the historic nature of many of Scotland’s buildings today. It is very important that architects have the appropriate experience and are adaptable, flexible, and capable of appropriately influencing the design process.

We provide comprehensive and accurate advice from the earliest stages of a project through to completion and we are dedicated to the highest standards of design management, encompassing all elements of communication, administration and ensuring that our projects are run on programme and to the client’s budget.

We have been able to demonstrate an ability to pull together the sometimes-opposing requirements to achieve a successful result and offer good judgment. This can involve compromises by all parties and is often a circular process which ensures that not only are communications passed, but they are fully understood, and this is reflected in the resultant design proposal.
