Darren Baird Architecture

The practice

We are a small architectural design practice based in Glasgow, Scotland. We design and create buildings and spaces that are affordable, beautiful, functional and life-enhancing. Our specialism is small residential projects, however we have recently added commercial projects to our portfolio, and we can help if you want to:
  • build a new home
  • extend or alter your property
  • convert your loft, garage or barn
  • build or refurbish business premises
We are currently engaged in a variety of projects in and around Glasgow and the central belt of Scotland.

Our approach

Collaboration is fundamental to our way of working, and we encourage you to share your ideas, inspirations and vision. We help you think about your space in different ways, show you what is possible and provide the information you need to make informed choices. We are here to assist you with your project and your requirements guide our design.

We know that it is difficult to visualise the end product from technical drawings alone, so we use a variety of media that are easily interpreted and understood to present our designs to you. These include sketches, water colours and visualisations. With computer visualisations, you will see what the final build will look like – inside and out – before site work begins.

Because we are small you get a personal, responsive, tailored service. You will have one point of contact throughout the project, so it is simple to keep things running smoothly. Our size makes us flexible and we are happy to work around your other commitments, and our love of designing ensures we will go that extra mile to achieve the optimum built result.

We are committed to environmentally-conscious design. We can advise you on insulation, renewable energy, water conservation systems and ‘green’ building materials. Sustainable design will save money on your energy bills too.
