John Kinsley Architects

Review Me
Edinburgh, City Of Edinburgh
"We shape our buildings and then they shape us." Commissioning a new building is an act of profound optimism – for those that do so, often the most significant undertaking of their lives. We work regularly with clients for whom building is a once in a lifetime event, we have self built ourselves (both individually and as part of a collective group) and we understand both the joys and the tribulations that accompany that commitment. Ultimately we judge the quality of our work on the sense of delight promoted by our buildings in the people that use them. We try to work with a quiet reverence for the materials with which we build, the place where we build and the planet on which we build in a way that reflects the optimism and passion of the people that commission us. John set up John Kinsley Architects in May 2016. Our first major project, a Collective Custom Build residential scheme in Portobello, Edinburgh is currently on site.
