Practice

Ewan Cameron Architects are an award-winning practice, specialising in modern, energy efficient buildings. We have an office in the Lighthouse Centre for Architecture and Design in Glasgow and a design studio in rural Perthshire. Projects are undertaken UK wide.

We work in partnership with our clients to realise their aspirations and add value by providing beautifully resolved designs which exploit views and harness natural daylight whilst optimising “passive solar gain”-heating naturally with the sun.

We believe in collaborative working and have strong working relationships with structural engineers, builders, service and cost consultants, ensuring that each project is resourced with the appropriate skills and experience. We have a particular interest in sustainable construction and specify natural materials wherever possible as well as ensuring that all building “envelopes” are as thermally efficient as possible.

Ewan is an accredited Passive House designer.
