I have worked in the architectural field since 1997. During this time I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience across various sectors but found my way back to domestic practice. There’s something really inspiring about working with home owners to produce quality design solutions that can change the way they live in the property.
I enjoy family life with my wife and son. We have an active life and enjoy spending time outside and by the sea.
Outside of work I am keen scratch golfer having rediscovered the sport in my 40’s after 15 years away from the sport. During that time I completed the marathon des sables, cycled from London to Glasgow in 5 days, completed a charity skydive and climbed a few Munros. For a period of time I was a FIFA match agent running football tours to places like Gambia and Mongolia working with football associations to promote FIFA backed campaigns such as Live your Goals promoting women’s football. I was a keen advocate of futsal and chaired the Scottish Futsal League (for the SFA) and found myself assisting a team in the UEFA futsal champions league.
I have been a qualified architect for more than 12 years and have a wealth of experience working on domestic projects both large and small in the Edinburgh area. I have a keen eye on attention to detail and maximising the most potential from your home. I joined KPA in 2023 and look forward to continuing the award winning standards of the Glasgow office in Edinburgh.
Outside of the office environment I enjoy going for early swims and walking with my husband and office dog Breagh in the local hills or exploring further afield in our TentBox. My husband and I are keen long distance walkers also, having completed the West Highland Way in 2021 and more recently a charity walk ‘Follow the Seagulls’ along the Fife Coast in April 2023 raising money for the Braintrust brain tumour charity. 50 miles, two days, on foot. Which is where we met Ed, Karen Parry’s husband.
I have been a qualified architect since 2010 and have worked for several architect practices in Glasgow, both large and small scale. For a number of years I worked on a self employed basis, providing architect services to offices (working across different sectors including Healthcare, Hotel and Residential) and then taking on projects of my own (mostly domestic house extension / alteration projects). I joined KPA in 2019. I enjoy all of the interactions possible through working in private practice and the challenges often involved when working with existing buildings. I have always enjoyed hand drawing/ sketching, both at work and as a hobby at home, when my 3 young children now allow.
I am a fully qualified architect and have over 6 years experience working on a range of large and small scale projects within practice. As a Part 1 Architectural Assistant I worked in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore experiencing new cultures and typologies. As a Part 2 I worked in London and Glasgow on mostly domestic projects, I have a passion for high quality architecture that adds value to society and enjoy working with the team at KPA to further develop my own skills and knowledge.
Outside of work I regularly play tennis and have a passion for travelling. Most recently I travelled to Italy to watch the F1 in Monza which was a great experience.
I am a qualified architect with over 5 years experience of working in the residential sector. Since joining KPA in 2018 I have developed a love for domestic architecture and exploring new ideas with the team to provide residential spaces people can enjoy. I am keen to share my passion for modern architecture found through travelling the world and using this to help our clients create their dream spaces. I enjoy working with home-owners and the challenges involved in working with something as personal as the home.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my partner and son, exploring the outside, swimming and often finding myself spending hours of the day at softplay!
I am a qualified architect with over 5 years experience of working within award winning practices in both the residential and domestic sector. Since moving to KPA I have developed a real love for domestic design and working as part of a team to create architectural spaces that enhance people’s day to day lives. I particularly enjoy using 3D visualisations and hand sketching to explore creative ideas.
Outside of work I have always been an avid concert and festival goer with rock, metal and country music being my main genres. I play basketball regularly and have recently taken up going to the gym to try and improve my fitness. In my downtime I mostly play video games or guitar when I’m not binging a new TV series.
Hi, I’m Breagh the new KPA Edinburgh office Labrador.
I love chasing balls and splashing around in water.
Karen set up the practice in 2005 to focus on her love of domestic architecture. As the business grew it became a collective of creative individuals with a shared passion for finding the best possible solution for each client’s home within constraints of space and budget. Karen very sadly passed away in 2020 but the practice continues in her name as a legacy to her commitment to making the most of your home by unlocking its potential.
