Martin Myers

Martin Myers

Director

I have worked in the architectural field since 1997.  As an Architectural Technologist my background is in the the technical aspects of the process however, I have been fortunate to work with some talented people and been given the opportunity to develop all aspects of the delivering high quality designs through to a completion.  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.

Beth Fraser

Beth Fraser

Senior Architect

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.

Rowan MacLachlan

Rowan Maclachlan 

Senior Architect

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.

Andrew Matheson

Andrew Matheson 

Architect

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.

Shelley Crawford

Shelley Crawford 

Architect

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!

David McPheat

David McPheat 

Architect

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.

Founder

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.

Beth topped up her CPD quota at the Homebuilding & Renovating Show at the SECC this weekend.  Lots of excellent products and great to put a name to the face of the people behind the products we specify every day.  Great to see the show so busy despite the lovely weather over the weekend.
Completed extension and alterations project in Clarkston, which made this property the perfect family home with huge open plan kitchen dining space, play area, large bifolding doors opening out into the garden, while still being a practical space for all the family.

we love this look of this one!!

As well as planning permission, for most alterations to your home you need to apply for a building warrant before you're allowed to start building work. While planning permission is about how your house will look, a building warrant is about whether it meets building standards - we are experts at this and here to help you every step of the way! 

Clients often get confused when it comes to planning permission and building warrant, here is a brief insight into both!

Works competed onsite by Ability Construction to an existing bungalow in Bearsden. 

The property was stripped back with the existing roof removed to re-pitch to maximise space available for a master suite in the attic. The property was also extended to the side and rear to create a new large open-plan kitchen, living and dining room and provide a new WC, dog area and utility room, all creating a better flow throughout the house and a more liveable space.

This morning our team had an exciting office trip out to the VIP opening of the new @expressbifoldingdoors showroom in East Kilbride with @mrgeorgeclarke and @johnamabile 🎉✨

A big thank you for inviting us along to join! 

We had a great morning looking at some of their outstanding bifold and sliding door options and the huge range of products they offer!

If anyone is looking to see some products in person or is torn between bifold or sliders we would highly recommend going along to try out the products!👷🏼‍♂️🏡
Progress is going well on this big one in Jordanhill! The works being carried out include a new single storey rear extension to form a beautiful open plan kitchen, dining and sitting area with huge Skylights over and a two storey side extension to provide 3 new bedrooms and gym space.
Not long left until this is complete! We can’t wait to see this dream home finished!🏡💫
