Practice Profile

Boydell Architecture combines the architectural expertise of Ranald Boydell with the architectural design/building surveying team led by Moray McLaren. Ranald has been practicing architecture in the UK and his native Australia for over 20 years, most recently trading under the name Ecotecture. Moray’s team has been operating in the Scottish and English Borders for almost 50 years, originally as part of John Sale & Partners, more recently Buccleuch and then CKD Galbraith. The combined office commenced trading as Boydell Architecture in November 2013.

Boydell Architecture provides a full range of architectural design and building surveying services, including heritage conservation and sustainable development. We can assist clients with all phases of a project from conception to completion, and know that even the smallest project deserves equal attention to detail.

We have particular expertise with country houses, drawing on our common heritage and shared understanding of rural life. This includes the refurbishment of historic country houses and the design of new ones, along with their garden and landscape setting, and all the practical demands of a working farm or estate.

We have an extensive portfolio of completed projects throughout the UK and Australia, and will consider projects elsewhere. Locally, our work is mostly in the Borders, Edinburgh and the Lothians, and Northumberland.
