Our Studio

An award-winning architecture studio with a breadth of design and technical experience, at Brown & Brown we are committed to designing contemporary and sustainable buildings that are perfectly suited to their site, client, users and budget.

With a close interest in contextual architecture, as well as exploring contemporary interpretations of vernacular Scottish architecture, we truly understand the value and importance of creating spaces that are not only beautiful but completely functional.
