Insights, inspiration and news from the Albyn Architects team
Whether you are looking to build your dream home from scratch, add to your existing property or need advice on how to make the most of the space in your home- architects are trained professionals who have the skills to turn your dream project into a reality.
No matter the size or complexity of your project, you are probably considering ‘how much does an architect cost?’ and ‘what type of work do they do?’.
In our latest blog post, Ian McGregor, provides an insight into the role of an architect and the associated costs.
Aberdeen-based architectural practice Albyn Architects is celebrating one of its busiest periods to date by moving to larger premises and taking on additional members of staff in response to an increase in business across all its services.
Albyn Architects are pleased to have obtained planning permission for the extension and refurbishment of a 3 storey house, within the conservation area of Footdee.
The house has an amazing location, overlooking the sea, and our client wanted to take advantage of this by adding larger window openings.
We have increased the ground floor footprint to provide an open plan Kitchen/Dining/Family space, with large sliding door allowing the Family space to become a more private area. This space can also double up as a guest bedroom, where the lucky guests can perch on the window seat and watch the sunset.
On the upper levels, the rooms have been reconfigured around a new stair, creating 3 Bedrooms, an upper living area and a Family Bathroom.
The design and materials of the extension have been chosen to respect the neighbouring buildings. Maintaining the unique character of the area, while bringing the property up to modern accommodation standards, to create a stunning Family home.
Albyn Architects are now progressing with the building warrant stage of the project.
Work has started on this single storey extension, in Stoneywood.
Only 3 weeks since work started and the builders have completed the groundworks, erected the timber kit, roof and have started fitting the insulation.
The extension will provide a multi purpose space, which can be used as a Bedroom, Playroom or a Home Office, with doors opening out into the garden. The extension also provides a Shower Room and Utility. The internal alterations will see the main open plan space rearranged, with a brand new kitchen providing a stunning focal point of the room.
Looking forward to the cladding being fitted and the internal works progressing.
Albyn Architects have obtained planning permission for this 2 storey
extension, complete with a raised Terrace and Ancillary building. The

Converting your garage is a great way of extending your home. This can provide you with an extra Bedroom, Home Office or, in this case, it can provide you with the space to create an open plan Kitchen/Dining area, with separate Utility. Ideal for the modern family home.
It's been a busy start to the year, with a range of projects at various stages. However, we find nothing more satisfying than when a project gets to site, as this is when we can deliver the design we have been working on over the past 6 months.

further consultation rooms, Albyn Architects have obtained planning and
building warrant approval for the next phase of the works - a ground
