What we do
Thorne Wyness Architects are an inventive and dynamic architects partnership based on the Isle of Mull and covering the West Coast of Scotland. We are interested in making the most of any situation and we listen carefully to our clients needs, drawing on the specifics of site and location. Our aim is to create sustainable and generous architecture and we are interested in projects of any scale or complexity. We have over 30 years of combined experience across our team in new-build, refurbishment, residential, commercial, retail, and hotel architecture. We are a rural practice that also has a broad range of large project experience that we draw on to help us to solve design, cost and procurement problems.
We are specialists in energy saving and environmental design and we can apply these skills to your project to varying degrees. We know that clients are increasingly environmentally conscious and that energy costs are a real concern. We adopt a 'fabric first' Passive house approach in our designs; new-build or refurbishment which can result in the need for virtually no space heating.
We have extensive experience of using different construction materials and techniques, including natural and breathable materials and we are not scared of tackling complex technical issues should the need arise. Our Ulva Ferry housing and Riverside House projects are both technologically innovative; as they were among the first examples of Cross Laminated Timber buildings in Scotland.
We can also carry out custom cold bridge analysis and moisture analysis for our clients, as well as for other architects or construction professionals. Please get in touch if you would like more details.
