Our purpose

We design buildings that make people happy. All our work comes back to that core aim.

How we do it

This starts with responding to each residential client individually. We focus deeply on what they want, who they are, and how they envisage their ideal lifestyle. It’s almost like our sixth sense. So as well as applying our architectural design skills and honed processes, we ensure from the very beginning that each building will be just right.

As local architects, we understand Scottish architecture innately and aim to apply inspiration, imagination and creativity to each project, capturing views and sunlight, enhancing wellbeing, creating flow, and enabling efficiency and pleasure in your daily life.


Thomas Robinson Architects is an award-winning team of residential architects based near Glasgow and working all over Scotland, designing luxury homes from Scotland’s Borders to Glasgow up to the Highlands and islands. We specialise in designing exceptional exteriors and interiors in rural and urban settings as part of large and small projects, and offer a full residential architectural service across Scotland.

What we do

We create beautiful homes and house extensions for residential clients. Our design skills cover contemporary and traditional buildings, including historic buildings, listed buildings, Classical and Arts & Crafts styles. 

We take on architectural projects of all sizes, from luxury modern house builds to traditional house extensions, upsizing and downsizing projects, and complete refurbishments. From castle upgrades to farm redevelopments, and Scottish island bothies to sustainable country estates, we relish all kinds of Scottish architectural projects.

As a specialist team of local architects based near Glasgow and working throughout Scotland, we also offer interior architecture and interior design for homeowners.

Sustainable design 

Sustainable house design is a core consideration of every project we are part of.  We maintain current knowledge of innovative materials and practises for sustainable buildings, ensuring they are healthy, warm and energy efficient. With certified Passivhaus architects on the team, we can extrapolate the best sustainable design knowledge into all our projects.

We have Passivhaus-accredited Glasgow architects on our modern residential architects team, as well as building conservation specialists, for all the intricacies of period properties.

Who we are and our expertise

We are also a member of the Architects Registration Board with over 20 years of experience.

Our residential architecture practice offers professional architectural services, from managing your entire project and handling alterations to simply drawing up architectural plans for your property.

What makes us special is our deep understanding of what each client wants – then creating it. It’s partly an intangible architectural skill that comes from experience but is also about paying attention to detail at every level.

While the style of each residential architectural project is different, there is an essential similarity in all Thomas Robinson Architects projects. They flow, offer a feeling of calm pleasure, sit comfortably in their setting and utilise natural light successfully. 

Our architectural designers and consultants offer exceptional personal service through all stages of a project, communicating with you clearly and often with well-established processes. Steering a Scottish architectural project from initial consultation through the design process and planning permission right up until the completion of your Scottish building project, is what we do best.
