Allison Architects Bearsden Extension Design is Complete

Allison Architects Bearsden extension is now complete.

Our Bearsden clients approached Allison Architects to develop designs for their new extension project.

Our client initially spoke with a number of architects in Bearsden but decided to go with Allison Architecture as we showed a real understanding of their needs and had the design flair to come up with a truly beautiful result

The clients were looking for a generous additional space which could form an additional living space and the family dining space which would be directly adjacent to their existing kitchen.

The house is one of the more spacious typical Bearsden bungalows with a converted attic space. As we find on many occasions the space inside these homes is slightly limited for today’s families.

The desire was for the design to work sympathetically with the existing house. so we employed a smooth white render to the walls and matched the roof tiles to the existing.

The client also wanted a raised terrace area which would be sheltered to provide an attractive seating area but would maximise views and access to the garden.

The structure for such a roof overhang was quite extensive to prevent the wind catching the underside. It was our idea to express all of this structural steel on the outer leaf of the walls to give architectural presence to the structure.

The project construction was carried out by ABC construction whom we have worked with now on many occasions. we are always delighted with their incredible attention to detail and their friendly and polite manner.

Office Interior Design- Allison Architects Glasgow

Our latest Glasgow office interior design for QUIZ Clothing is our latest in Glasgow. Architects

Our office interior designers in Glasgow are now proud to announce its completion.

This is Allison Architecture’s fourth Glasgow office interior design.

Quiz’s head office is based in the old Bilsland Bakery Building on the North side of the Clyde.

Quiz recently floated the company and has since expanded rapidly requiring a new space for an additional 80 staff.


It was decided that the Marketing, Social Media, E-Commerce, Customer Care and IT divisions would be relocated to the the 2nd floor.

The 2nd Floor would undergo a full fit out to transform the space from an empty shell into a dynamic space.

The space would consisting of open plan office workspace for upto 80 staff, cellular office spaces for the directors.

There will be a mixture of meeting spaces from the new board room to flexible spaces with varying levels of privacy.

Meeting spaces behind glass partitioning cater for more private (or noisy) meetings for upto 10 people.

Semi private coves allow for ad hoc break out meetings with interactive screens for stat checks and presentations.

Our pods provide highly soundproofed spaces for one to two people to be able to work in a quiet space free from distraction.

The Concept

The driving concept for our latest office interior design in Glasgow was the ‘runway/catwalk’.

We wanted there to be a main processional route through the space from the entrance to the board room.

Visitors would take this processional route along our runway at all times catching glimpses between office and pods.

The runway could be a catwalk for events such as fashion shows where bloggers and press would be invited .

The big idea was to give the staff a feeling of being truly embedded in the fashion industry. To really feel like key players and like a global brand.

We want to give employees the feeling that they have really achieved their dream of a career in the fashion industry.

Movement through space stimulating movement of thoughts and inspiration. The variety of spatial experience provoking fresh and innovative insight. 

The office interior design in Glasgow, furniture and finishes really had to capture the DNA of the brand. This doesn’t mean that they should look like the store.

Our office interior design in Glasgow has a very different function from the stores but is has to feel related by picking up on the brand essence.

House Extension Design in Cambuslang by Glasgow Architects, Allison Architecture.

Our clients in Cambuslang were looking through the web for architects. Glasgow based Allison Architecture were then approached to deliver their dream extension.

The core reason for the extension to have a new kitchen which was insulated and warm on those winter mornings. The existing kitchen was a small lean-to extension circa 1950s with a concrete floor and little or no heating.

Allison Architects Glasgow were asked to create a design for a single-storey house extension to the family home in Cambuslang comprising of a large open plan kitchen / dining area with a new Utility Room.

The concept behind the design

was to create a large open plan space with large corner bifold windows to open out into the garden area. The New rear Entrance to the property will have function as a cloakroom area with plenty of room for coats and wellies and also the utility room opposite.

Our Glasgow architects then developed a materials palette with the clients.We have gone for a traditional slate roof to tie in with the existing house design a

long with  wet dab render and glazed brick walls along with a wall of smooth faced red brick to the side of the Utility/Cloakroom area which will echo the traditional red brick to the garden walls and Victorian garage.

House Extension in Hamilton: Architects, Allison Architecture Glasgow

Although Allison Architecture are Glasgow architects. Hamilton clients, Mr and Mrs Neyroud, chose us having met us to discuss their project at the Ideal Home Show at the SECC.

The clients had recently bought a good size bungalow in Hamilton and were prepared to carry out a lot of refurbishment work in addition to extending and converting the attic.We developed a design for a rear extension and the loft conversion with a new feature stair which would form the backdrop to a log burning stove and log store.

This area would form the heart of the house and the centre of the newly formed open plan living and kitchen space to the rear of the house.

Gartcosh Extension by Allison Architects Glasgow

Our client in Gartcosh invited several architects to bid for this fantastic project. Between two choices of architects. Glasgow based architects Allison Architecture were picked.

We were asked to replace an existing conservatory with a high specification flat roof  house extension in Gartcosh near Glasgow.

We used western red cedar timber cladding and Z-clad sandstone random rubble course natural stone to give a real tactile feel to the external walls which would create a warm and textured backdrop to the new patio space.

Velfac windows kept frame widths to an absolute minimum to maximise daylight. Schuco bi fold doors and a pyramid roof light also helped to maximise the feeling of natural light within the space.

The high quality luxurious finish was continued internally with solid oak flooring,  skirtings and fascias. The fireplace was also faced in stone to give the feeling that the hearth was one large stone faced element which stands alone with glazing either side.

The result is a beautifully warm space which captures a rustic Scottish feel with a contemporary twist.

The clients are yet to agree on the hanging of a claymore on the stone wall next to the fire.

Perthshire New Build Housing Development by Allison Architects Glasgow office

Our clients, JDMI brought us this marvellous opportunity to design 4 fantastic 5 bedroom new build houses just outside Aberfeldy.

We have worked with JDMI on a number of projects and work closely with them on many projects in Glasgow. Architects, Allison Architecture, have now delivered three townhouse conversion projects in Glasgow.

Our aim was to develop designs which would take full advantage of the incredible views. We relevelled the site to terrace the houses so that views from houses 1 and 2 would not be obscured by 3 and 4.

We used beautiful Perthshire sandstone and wet dab render along with Natural Slye roofing to give a strong sense of context, permanence and embedded was to the houses.

Internally they would have a luxurious appeal with open fires and wood burning stoves, beautifully appointed en suites and huge amounts of high performance glazing to maximise daylight and views across the mountains.

Bearsden Extension Design by Allison Architects, Bearsden.

We offered full architects’ services for this Bearsden house extension project. Our clients were looking for architects, Bearsden based or Glasgow based to help transform their recently purchased house into a dream home.

Glasgow Architects, Allison Architecture, were quickly chosen as the best team for this extension project. Although we are based in Glasgow, Stephen Allison, Principal Architect, lives in Bearsden making Bearsden based design projects within easy reach for meetings and supervision inspections.

This Bearsden house design project was originally one and a half storey, semi-detached 3 bedroom house with three reception rooms on the ground floor and a small kitchen.

We extended to the rear of the house over two levels creating a large additional en-suite bedroom on the first floor.

On the ground floor we knocked through between the original dining room and the kitchen and with the kitchen extension created a large living / kitchen / dining space to complement the large formal lounge to the front of the house.

The large bi-fold doors open up the entire corner of the house onto a new terrace creating a fantastic new external room to the house.

Helensburgh Residential development Designs by Glasgow architects, Allison Architecture.

Allison Architects Glasgow and other Glasgow architects were asked to put together a proposal for a housing development in Helensburgh.

The site comprised of a care home which had an existing extension linking two Victorian villas.

Our architects developed a design scheme in Helensburgh which would comprise of a new build villa between the two existing, which would themselves be subdivided into luxury apartments.

Allison Architects Glasgow office is located in the Kelvingrove area of Glasgow and has ample street parking making it a convenient Glasgow architects practice to visit.

Allison Architecture Appointed Architects: Bearsden Extension Design Project

Allison Architecture were appointed as architects in November for their latest house extension project in Bearsden.

We developed a set of architectural plans as the starting point for the design. And then moved on to produce studies of the external appearance with photomontage.

The existing house lends itself well to be extended at the internal corner between the existing living room and kitchen diner. Existing large openings mean that no new structural openings are required to the main house.

The client wanted a simple, flat roof extension which would contrast with the main house and create a central focal point when looking back from the garden.

The Building Warrant Application has now been submitted to East Dunbartonshire Council and we await their final decision.
