Andrew has been delivering projects for over 30 years. With his own practice since 1995, he has specialised in residential buildings and commercial fit-out projects.
Combining his knowledge of high-quality materials and bespoke construction, he produces contemporary designs with what the press has described as “refined simplicity”
Andrew has a special interest in sustainable design, particularly energy-efficient houses. He has won a number of awards for his designs and his Flower House was built as one of the exemplars sustainable at Scotland’s Housing Expo in 2010.
Alongside this is his interest in cross-laminated timber CLT construction, which combines the sustainability of timber with precise factory construction and rapid site erection.
With his practice in Edinburgh, Andrew has worked with numerous Listed Buildings and has developed a skill for designing contemporary interventions for historic buildings across Edinburgh, Fife, East Lothian, Stirling, and Scotland.
Andrew also has extensive experience in both office and education buildings, starting in his early career, he has continued with his own practice with office fit-out and commercial interior projects as well as refurbishment and upgrading projects for various Scottish universities.
In addition to his work with SHS BURRIDGE ARCHITECTS, Andrew is a professional practice examiner with APEAS (Architects Professional Examination Authority in Scotland) and has served as a Member of Council for both the RIAS and the Edinburgh Architectural Association and as a Board Member and Deputy Chairman of the Friends of the Royal Scottish Academy.
