Paterson Gordon Architecture has extensive experience gained from many years in private practice, which allows us to bring knowledge, creativity and professionalism to your project.

We are registered with the Architects' Registration Board (ARB) and are members of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS).  We carry professional indemnity insurance to a value of £1m.


We operate from a beautiful Paterson Gordon-designed studio space on the banks of Loch Lomond but we are happy to travel throughout Scotland and beyond.  Alternatively, drop by our studio to see our work for yourself.


Elaine Paterson (M.ARCH. ARB RIAS) graduated from the Mackintosh School of Architecture at Glasgow School of Art in 2005.

She worked as an architect for global architecture company RMJM for nine years before creating Paterson Gordon Architecture.


During her time at RMJM, Elaine worked as project architect on the £50m University of the West of Scotland Ayr Campus and the £150m  award-winning Athletes' Village for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.


This allows her to bring a wealth of skill and experience to each and every project.
