Glasgow Architects

NIXON has its own in-house architectural services making us stand out from the crowd. 

We’ve expanded and grown our team to exceed clients’ expectations. We’ve brought in architects with a broad range of experience in various sectors to ensure we can fully meet our client’s requirements, whatever the project.

Our team is diverse and aim to bring enthusiasm, vision and inspiration to your project.


We are commercially aware and work closely with our in-house quantity surveyors and structural engineers to ensure the budget is optimised and the programme is managed as efficiently as possible.

With our architects team based in-house, we can deliver your project from inception to completion saving you time and costs on outsourcing your architectural needs.

We work on local Glasgow architectural projects as well as further afield throughout Scotland. 


Being disciplined yet creative is core to our values at NIXON. Our architects understand this better than anyone and will work with you to achieve and realise your ambitions. The team has experience across all major market sectors including retail, commercial, residential, student accommodation, hotels, healthcare and education.

We draw from a pool of Glasgow School of Art graduates, each with extensive experience, having worked for some of Scotland’s leading practices. Sam Smithers leads our team of creative architects in Glasgow and is an experienced practitioner across a range of disciplines. 


Having the architectural team in-house allows us to control every aspect of our projects and to foresee problems before they unfold. 

We have a rigorous approach to design to ensure each project is compliant in terms of the building regulations and energy efficient while maximising the commercial viability of the site.

We pride ourselves in producing well-detailed buildings which contribute to the built environment and work well for the users and owners. We are always keen to hear from potential clients about what we could do to help your realise your ambitions.
