From the moment we set eyes on the Garden House we were overwhelmed with excitement; the lifestyle it embraces, the open spaces, the profusion of light, the design styling, in fact everything. The reaction from any guest is always of stunned amazement giving us a warm sense of pride. it is our piece of heaven on earth, and thank you for making it all happen.

Building to our plan of a Rest & Study Retreat for Christian Scientists, this centre fulfils our expectations in many ways. The light, the spacious rooms, the tranquility make it an area of modern, peaceful reflection in the centre of a busy world. Thank you for understanding our thoughts of serenity and the translation of those ideas into this beautiful material building we have today. With its totally green energy system, triple glazing and large patio and terrance windows and doors it is comfortable, yet warm & airy in all seasons. We have much to be grateful for.

All my friends comment on the sense of extraordinary calm and serenity they feel on entering Woodlands. It is a rare talent to produce a new home that is both an exquisite work of beauty in it’s own right, without imposing itself on or competing with the majesty of its woodland surrounding.
Upon our return from Hong Kong ten years ago our solicitor suggested we invite Lorn to appraise a thoroughly dilapidated Edinburgh New Town listed town house. Nothing seemed to phase his enthusiasm, empathy and knowledge applied in transforming this building into our wonderful family home. Five years later lorn applied the same enchanting magic in wholesale refurbishment to our country home at the Bridge of Cally. He has been just great as our architect and friend.
Colin & Sue Buchan
Lorn did a splendid job. I was particularly impressed by his attention to detail throughout the whole process. I had to do very little. I felt very comfortable leaving Lorn in charge.
A massive thank you to Lorn and the team for coming up with innovative ideas which have transformed the way we use the house and for delivering the whole project efficiently and on time.
Alistair & Emma Stewart
Lorn and his team have been excellent in all areas, from design work to quality craftsmanship, to cost control and to the timetable. Doing a project from Hong Kong is a daunting prospect but Lorn has been very open, very straight-forward and very patient throughout and I would have no reservations in recommending him to anyone considering building, extending or renovating a property in Scotland.
Mark & Vivienne Harris
From the earliest stage, we found LMA’s approach to our project very helpful, flexible and conscientious.
During construction, their input was invaluable and we are delighted with the final outcome in terms of design and quality of the finished project.
Jon Peltenburg & Hermione Cockburn
We cannot begin to thank Lorn, Sula and Michael for all they have achieved. We had bought a traditional manse that we thought we could improve a little. What has resulted is a very special, exceeding our every expectation. We are still pinching ourselves.
Simon & Catherine Graham
We were delighted with Lorn and his extraordinary ability to mix old with new in achieving a modern, classic, light-filled style.
His imaginative reworking of space and his eye for detail are amazing.
He was conscientious in meeting our brief while persuasively encouraging us to embrace new ideas.
We love our refurbished Victorian house and we are delighted to recommend Lorn and his team.
Ian & Jan Fraser
Lorn and his team understand the way families live and that coupled with their creative flair and attention to detail meant that they transformed our house into our home. The living space that they created is imaginative, much admired and certainly represented a full return on our investment.
Richard & Fiona Taylor
Lorn worked for the previous owners on our historically listed home. We approached his firm, amongst others to replace a rather inappropriate conservatory with a new garden room. Their initial design concept proved superior resulting in an appointment. Sula and Michael were a pleasure to work with in delivering a final product which has added hugely to the enjoyment of our home.
Bill & jane Thomson
Lorn listened to what we were looking for in an extension to our home and came up with the most fantastic, light filled and exciting living space, which completely exceeded our expectations. The whole project also came in on time and on budget in part due to Lorn’s incredible attention to detail and his intimate involvement in the project. We are absolutely thrilled with the end result and cannot sing the praises high enough for Lorn and his team.
Mr & Mrs Bartolo
A great thank you Lorn, to you and your team in having transformed our home by creating this wonderful contemporary and very usable family space with an awesome south facing terrace.
We have seen and admired Lorn’s work in various properties over many years. We were therefore delighted when he accepted a project to turn an 18th century run down farmhouse into a home providing the best that modern life can offer without impacting a wonderful old stone built property’s essential character. To say that we are pleased with the outcome is understating our huge satisfaction with a project that has delivered all that we wanted. The project was managed with the minimum of fuss and the maximum level of communication and involvement.
Lorn and his team always welcomed our input and have been extremely diligent in the monitoring of our experiences in the house post completion. Whilst in any project there are the inevitable frustrations and issues, in every instance Lorn and his team have been supportive and helped us find solutions. It has been a real pleasure working with Lorn and his excellent team and if I ever do this again Lorn would be my first call.
