BArch(Hons), DipArch, MArch, ARB
Calum gained experience in a variety of practices prior to joining WTA in late 2014. He has worked for practices in the Netherlands, the Lake District, and also for the Health Programme at Architecture & Design Scotland, advocating how design quality can improve the lives of patients, staff and visitors.
At WTA Calum has helped to deliver of a number of conversions and new build homes as well as a the new Village Hall on Iona. He is currently Project Architect for the mixed-use development at Tyninghame Steading in East Lothian; for a significant new house on the Tay estuary; and for an exciting new extension/conversion in Edinburgh. Calum also works on reviewing and developing our BIM procedures for Archicad.
Calum really enjoys the initial exploration of a client’s brief through hand-drawing: sketching and testing spaces and atmospheres that will become the background to people’s lives. He is interested in identity, the playful and in the unexpected details, but ultimately, of architecture that tells a story and affords people with places where they just want to be.
Outside the office, Calum spends a good deal of his time writing music, playing guitar and is currently learning piano and the drums… much to his partner’s delight. You can usually find him with a stitch playing 7-a-side football once a week.
