Collective Architecture

Architects from TOP FLOOR, MERCAT BUILDING, 26 GALLOWGATE, GLASGOW, United Kingdom
The company is owned by an employee-run trust intended to reward and further involve staff in practice development. Working internationally with private and public clients, we consider all projects unique, regardless of size or budget, and capable of providing a source of identity for place, organisation or individual.

Our ethos encourages individuals to express themselves and research issues which are of relevance to both their work and wider society. This has resulted in our architects developing specialist knowledge, accreditation and qualifications, to achieve a range of crucial skills. We share that information and encourage discussion through events, forum, publication and are active in a number of important institutions. Many of our staff teach, lecture and guest at schools of architecture in the UK and throughout Europe.

We consider each project special and develop an approach to suit that project’s need and potential. From the outset we explore all the elements of architecture through collaborative workshops and the use of three dimensional media. This leads to well crafted buildings that contribute to happiness and wellbeing over a prolonged period of time. Our work has been widely published and exhibited in Glasgow, London, Barcelona, the Chicago Atheneaum and the Venice Biennale. We have also been recognised with a variety of national and international awards.
