ak|a is an award winning architectural practice based in rural Aberdeenshire and carries out design-led restoration, conversion, extension and new-build projects with an emphasis on sustainability. The practice endeavours to use locally sourced traditional and salvaged materials whenever possible and promotes the use of renewable energy systems in both restoration and new-build projects. Existing redundant rural architecture can be put to reuse for residential or commercial purposes through sensitive conversion based on a sound understanding of traditional materials and techniques and the potential of new interventions.
Annie Kenyon established the practice in 2006 and heads a team comprising architects, technicians and 3D graphic designer. The designers are supported by the Practice Manager and administration team.
Annie Kenyon Architects Limited is an RIAS Chartered Practice.
