Groves-Raines Architects Ltd. is a vibrant, friendly architecture studio based in the bustling hub of Leith in Edinburgh.
We are Irish, icelandic, Scottish, English, Czech, South African and Canadian and around 25 of us work from our lovely 17th century merchant's house office right by The Shore. We are dedicated to the conservation and sustainable re-use of historic buildings. Our passion also lies in traditional architecture, the design of new buildings in the traditional aesthetic (essentially - built new and works like new but looks like it's been around for centuries!). Our modern design studio, GRAS provide state of the art, sustainable, contemporary design and, working in collaboration with them, we achieve a balance of imaginative design with sensitivity for the setting.
We love visitors so please get in touch if you have any ideas on a new project or collaboration - we have been known to provide coffee and biscuits!
