At :thatstudio, Andrew has led the development of 14 new residential units in Crieff town centre conservation area, the redevelopment of a former stables and coach house to form a new award winning home and the development of Craigeuan Walled Garden to a new country estate.
Prior to founding :thatstudio, Andrew trained at Page \ Park Architects, one of Scotland’s best known practices. During his 8 year tenure he was project architect for the £2.2m refurbishment and extension of Nicolson Square Methodist Church, the award winning £2m refurbishment of Kelvingrove Bandstand and the £25m refurbishment and extension of the Kelvin Hall in Glasgow’s west end.
Andrew graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, University of Dundee in 2007 with a Master of Architecture and is Conservation Accredited by RIAS.
Andy joined :thatstudio in 2016 after graduating from the University of Dundee with a Master of Architecture with Merit. He has worked at various practices within the UK and Germany including Cumming and Co in Aberdeen and Finsterwalder Architeckten, Rosenheim. This has allowed Andy to gain a broad range of Architectural experiences. He also gained a scholarship to work and research at the Venice Biennale for the British Arts Council. This varied experience and a passion for travel has given Andy a chance to embrace and study different styles of Architecture which has helped to broaden his architectural understanding.
Andy has an interest in creating architecture which embraces the surrounding environment to create elegant and understated buildings. He thinks Architecture has the possibility to improve the environments of the user from the micro to macro scale. He believes that in experimenting with light and texture, spaces can constantly change and evoke a variety of atmospheres which can encourage users to engage with spaces on a sensory level.
Jack became a member of our team in 2018 after graduating with First Class Honours and a Master of Architecture with Distinction from The University of Edinburgh. He’s gained experience in both the UK and abroad, having worked in the Netherlands for B+O Architecten and in Edinburgh for Yeoman McAllister Architects.
Jack’s particular interests lie in sensitive conservation architecture, sustainable design solutions and digital design & fabrication; and as such views architecture are the perfect balance between science and art.
He believes that continued technological advancement can allow buildings to become ever-more sustainable, while also equipping architects with the tools to create spaces that evoke emotion, sensory interaction and give people lasting architectural experiences.
