Principal Architect

Lorn Macneal

I have been practicing architecture now for more than thirty years. Some people tell me I am getting quite good at it, I do hope so! My greatest pride is the confidence in our team who must take full credit for our extraordinary range of projects that have given so much pleasure to so many clients. My role is now increasingly to draw back, consult, support, and delegate, allowing me a little more time to slip off and play golf in St Andrews.

Michael joined Lorn at the outset almost thirty years ago, shortly  after graduating from Edinburgh University. His involvement  as Senior Associate has been managing the practice and working closely with clients primarily in restoration, refurbishment and extensions from inception through to completion, with a particular eye for attention to detail.




Sula McEwan

I was delighted when Sula rejoined the practice immediately after graduating from the Mackintosh in Glasgow in 1999.  As principal designer Sula works closely with clients in creating hand sketches to best communicate her ideas.  Her experience in design is well regarded in allowing her to skilfully navigate through the planning process.
