About the practice

The ARPL philosophy is to produce buildings to the highest standards in close consultation with our clients.

Our design is both innovative and sympathetic to the immediate and the broader environment with an emphasis on sustainability. Each project embraces the unique nature of the client’s needs and site.

We work over a wide geographical area from the Western Isles to Ireland. Our project experience covers housing, churches, schools, commercial projects, community and arts buildings. We have developed particular expertise in contemporary sustainable design, specialist conservation works and design for sensitive environments.

Our work has received wide recognition through numerous awards and competition success.
