Building Workshop is a multi award winning architecture and design practice in Angus with lots of successfully completed projects all over Scotland.  We pride ourselves on the work we do and are passionate about every project, from the first sketch on our yellow paper, until the last light bulb is fitted.  Our approach to architecture is collaborative and creative, with a strong focus on new technology and sustainability.

Husband and wife, Ben and Rosemary Scrimgeour, created Building Workshop in 2009.

Ben is a fully qualified architect, registered with the Architect’s Registration Board.  He graduated from the University of Dundee in 2008 with an MArch with distinction and spent his placement year working at Foster + Partners in London.  Ben forged a new route to chartership as the UK’s first “self-taught” Part 3 candidate to qualify as an architect in 2013.  Ben was elected on to the RIAS Council in 2018 and is the youngest member of the Council.  Having grown up on a farm, Ben likes to have a very hands on approach and be fully involved with projects from start to finish.

Rosemary graduated with an MA in Interpreting from the University of Bath – one of the most architecturally beautiful cities in the UK – before setting up Building Workshop with Ben.  Good communication is key to creating wonderful buildings, and Rosemary works closely with the full project team in order to make it all happen.  Rosemary is passionate about invigorating rural Scotland through creative, innovative and collaborative projects.  Rosemary also coaches on Stanford Graduate School of Business’s LEAD Corporate Innovation programme.
