One of the UK’s foremost architectural practices formed in 1962. Our aim is to create the best spaces, buildings and places with a level of design excellence that satisfy, delight and inspire our clients.

Our heritage is important to us. Founded in Edinburgh in 1962 by Professor Percy Johnson Marshall the practice has grown steadily across the UK.   Currently employing over 100 staff throughout the UK, the practice was recently voted Scotland’s no.1 architectural practice of 2014 and 2015 by Urban Realm Magazine.

jmarchitects is an award winning architectural practice with extensive experience in education, community, health, social housing, commercial, private residential, retail, and sports and leisure projects.

We regularly undertake complex projects ranging in value from £25k to £100m. ‘Complexity’ can take the form of multiple client / stakeholder representatives, phased demolition and construction over an extended period of time, site sensitivity or listed status of existing fabric, or even simply the scale of a particularly large, involved project. We have experience in all of these areas; our team scopes the level of complexity from the outset and formulates an action plan to manage and control any challenges throughout.

Our aim to create the best spaces, buildings and places with a level of design excellence that satisfies, delights and inspires. We understand that the success of any project lies in the relationship between client and architect; hence we adopt a collaborative, balanced and integrated approach.

Success is ultimately measured against our clients’ needs and objectives. By listening to and understanding their goals, we ensure their expectations correspond with our own. We consider all the key design drivers of each project including cost, programme, life cycle, and operations requirements.

We seek to establish and maintain an open communication and consultation process, which allows all stakeholders to be involved at the right level and at the right time. Our experience ranges across a number of sectors, and we ensure our team has a high level of design experience in many building types, allowing cross-fertilisation between building forms and types. Our track record demonstrates the quality of our work: the practice has won numerous high profile awards, both for design and technical services.

We seek to exceed the expectations of our clients by creating design solutions inspired by location, site and place that provide sustainability, flexibility and delight.
