Liz Roxburgh graduated from Edinburgh University in 1989. She worked with Rob Hunter Architects before setting up EA Roxburgh Architects in 1992 to design and realise a number of residential commissions for private clients. Many similar commissions followed thereafter with the practice gradually expanding to take on a wider variety of work. Marcus McEwan, a graduate of the Mackintosh School of Architecture trained and spent a number of years at Allan Murray Architects before joining EA Roxburgh Architects in 2003. In 2008 the Practice evolved to become Roxburgh McEwan Architects. Our core team of highly motivated and experienced Architects includes Associates Neil Mochrie Justine Fernandes and Gavin Yuill and Architect Jane Ingram.
We are a design led office, historically focused on residential projects for individual clients but with a body of work which also includes developer housing, master planning and a number of small scale commercial and leisure developments. Completed projects include many renovations of and extensions to Edinburgh's beautiful buildings, affordable and private housing on the Isle-of-Mull, a house for a private client on the Greek Island of Keffalonia, a new build cafe in Edinburgh (now taken over and reconfigured by Starbucks), sustainable residential developments for Blue Property Ltd, a Scottish Boathouse and a substantial reworking of a farmhouse steading with new build gym on the Scottish Coast.
With each project we work on we strive to interpret our client's requirements to create individual, elegant and innovative solutions. This approach begins with a thorough analysis of the brief, exploring the potential within each site, investigating the technical and material choices available, whilst working closely with each client and their budget towards the delivery of their building. Recent projects have increased our expertise in low energy and sustainable design, including the application of renewable technologies within existing buildings.
