Derek has over 30 years experience in designing and managing projects within some of the largest architects practices in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The majority of these projects have been residential; city and waterfront apartments; suburban housing developments for national house builders and individual houses throughout Scotland but have also included commercial office buildings and schools.

Recently, Derek enjoyed living and working in Muscat, Oman for six years where he embraced the challenges of designing and project managing large scale projects ranging from government ministries and commercial offices to 5 star hotels within a very different environmental, social and cultural climate.

In the early years, Derek 'cut his teeth' on small scale projects such as house extensions and remodelling individual flats. It was during this period Derek developed an understanding of the importance of the architect/client relationship.

On returning to his native Edinburgh, Derek was determined to channel the wealth of design skills and project management experience gained over 30 years into the small scale residential projects he felt so passionately about.
In his view, this is most effectively achieved where the architect has a direct relationship with his client.

Even before becoming an architect, Derek loved to draw and sketch, especially when on holiday in Italy. He would disappear for hours with sketchbook in hand and his pencil of choice, a Faber 2B graphite pencil, hence the name of his new architecture studio, 2B architects.

2B architects was founded as a way of rediscovering the root of what he enjoyed most about being an architect - collaborating with and assisting people realise their projects.

Which is why 2B architects specialise in designing new houses and extending and remodelling existing houses for individual clients.
