After a sustained period of growth, Albyn Architects expanded their team and moved into new offices in 2021.

With creativity, practicality and high quality design at the forefront of their work, the experienced design team at Albyn Architects is capable of meeting the demands of any building project across the north east of Scotland.

Ian McGregor

The Director

Ian is our principal architect, responsible for the day-to-day running of the practice.

Ian followed his love for design to university where he graduated with a Masters in 2007 from the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture in Aberdeen, before qualifying as an architect 2 years later.

Before being appointed director of Albyn Architects, Ian was the director of McGregor Garrow Architects. Prior to this, Ian held key roles in a number of architecture practices; Ian Rodger Architects, Halliday Fraser Munro, Space Solutions and Squire Associates.

Mark Dellaquaglia

Mr Design & Build

Mark is purely focused on the commercial side of the company. With 20+ years of experience in the sector, there is nothing Mark doesn't know about commercial projects. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience, from traditional architectural services, masterplanning, turnkey developments, workplace consultancy, fit-out refurbishment and construction management.

Mark began his architectural training at Aberdeen College before completing a Building Construction and Architectural Technology course at Robert Gordon University.

A director of Albyn Architects, Mark originally founded 'Albyn Architectural' in 2015 before joining forces with Ian in 2018, to create 'Albyn Architects'. This has allowed Mark to focus on the Workplace Design & Build side of the business.
