Tom Robinson


Tom Robinson is a founding director of the practice. Tom is an architect with accredited specialisms in conservation architecture and Passivhaus design. He is often the first person a client meets to discuss their idea here at Thomas Robinson Architects.

Tom graduated from the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture in Aberdeen. Before setting up Thomas Robinson Architects, he worked for practices including Law and Dunbar-Nasmith (now LDN Architects) in Edinburgh, Harvey & Scott - Gynn & Duff and James G Cuthbertson Architects, both in Glasgow, Pierce Dorsey Rhohrdanz in Florida, and Makower Architects in London.

Working on significant historic buildings, such as Aberuchill Castle, Sherbrooke St Gilberts Church and Christ Church Spitalfields London, has been an important part of Tom’s career. He has refurbished and helped preserve many more listed buildings and architecturally noteworthy country properties.

Tom also designs substantial houses for private clients. He advocates traditional design principles in his own work, but also appreciates and utilises the best of modernist design and modern technology.

Tom and Fiona run Thomas Robinson Architects together and head up an approachable practice. The team produces some of the best new buildings in Scotland, while also preserving the existing architecture that forms Scotland’s heritage.
