Harman Scott, Dip. Arch, RIBA, RIAS, Chartered Architect.

Based in Perth, Scotland, UK architect Harman Scott has over 40 years’ experience in designing buildings and managing projects, throughout the UK and in Ireland.  He is registered with the UK’s Architects’ Registration Board (ARB), and is a member of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and is a Royal Incorporation of Architects of Scotland (RIAS) Chartered Practice.

Harman currrently specialises in worship spaces, residential and commercial design, sustainable buildings, community halls and building conservation. His current projects are developing the innovative and futuristic ‘World Visioning Space’ in Toronto, Canada http://www.harmanscott.co.uk/visioning-space/ and advising on the development, maintenance, fire precautions and H&S management of 15 charity-owned meeting halls in UK.

Career experience also includes projects in the fields of transport, industrial, retail and church re-ordering.

Solutions arise from the question ‘why?’ and not merely ‘what?’, combining the use of light, space, texture and colour, often using traditional materials with a modern twist, in pursuit of quality, creative designs that have future flexibility.

His approach is to collaborate closely with the client and apply creative design thinking, to develop a project from the first seed of an idea, through feasibility and design development, to planning applications and building warrant / building regulations submissions. He is highly experienced in adding value, competitive tendering and project management to completion, thus embracing both creative design and technical expertise.

Harman describes it thus:

  • A custom-designed building should meet your needs like a made-to-measure suit, using the best of material you can afford, which will still ‘suit’ you for decades to come. It should reflect your personality and heritage, make you look good in it, and be capable of adapting to meet your ‘expanding’ or ‘downsizing’ needs in the future, without alteration! A good architect will encourage you to look well into the future, and, using his or her foresight and ability to visualise, design for that long-term future, not just short-term for today.Good design is the process of bringing the ‘ephemeral’ into the ‘material’. One could say it is ‘realising a dream’. It is the best, and most sustainable, approach.”
