I think that the ideal space must contain elements of magic, serenity, sorcery and mystery.”
— Luis Barragan
Gregor completed his undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at the University of Edinburgh, hopping back and forth between there and London where he joined Apt in 2019 for his Part I year out, then again for a summer position between postgraduate years and finally in 2022 as a Part II.

Originally hailing from rural Perthshire, Gregor stayed true to form in his choice to take the scenic route towards the goal of becoming an architect, spending 2 years studying Architectural Technology prior to starting his degree and taking some summer months to experience on-site work with a local joinery firm. He also enjoyed a 6-month work placement for a large architecture firm in Hamburg, Germany where he was part of an international competitions design team.

During his studies, Gregor’s degree projects ranged from rural island self-build programmes to a highly theoretical thesis which explored the impact creative arts can have on the climate emergency.

Beyond the office, Gregor enjoys camping and hillwalking, preferably combined with a long road trip and a small army of dogs. He is also enjoying the chance to take advantage of post-lockdown life in London, engaging with the creative environment in which Apt is based and the seemingly endless list of cultural events.
