Graeme Massie Architects was established in 2004, and has gained a reputation, nationally and internationally, for producing exemplary architecture and design across a wide-ranging project portfolio that encompasses master planning, landscaping, product design and public art.


We place great importance on collaboration and engagement with our clients, future users and other construction experts to ensure we develop the right project. Whether creating spaces in which to live, work, visit or simply pass through, each project is viewed as a unique opportunity that requires a unique solution. We believe a deep understanding of each project is vital to delivering outcomes with lasting value, relevance and purpose.


Since its establishment, the practice has enjoyed remarkable success, winning awards and international design competition. The work of Graeme Massie Architects has been widely published and exhibited. The practice was named Architect of the Year at the Scottish Design Awards in 2010, was runner-up for the Young Architect of the Year Award 2007 and was listed as one of the top ten emerging practices worldwide by the design magazine Wallpaper*. In 2016, Graeme Massie Architects were included in The Architecture Foundation’s book ‘New Practices 3’ as one of Britain’s best emerging practices.
