ARPL Architects

Dumfries Town Centre regeneration

A competition-winning concept pioneered by ARPL Architects is to make its mark on Dumfries for the first time after  planning approval was granted for a mixed-use development comprising flats, workshops, retail and exhibition space. ARPL have been working with the community  group initially developing a masterplan for the area and now moving the pilot project on to its construction phase.

The Oven is the lead element of an ambitious community-led masterplan for the MidSteeple Quarter which seeks to reimagine the High Street as a live/work hub, merging a mix of uses in a concentrated area.  

welcome to arpl architects

The ARPL philosophy is to produce buildings to the highest design standards in close consultation with our clients.

Our design is both innovative and sympathetic to the immediate and the broader environment in which they are constructed with an emphasis on sustainability. Each project embraces the unique nature of the client’s needs and the site.

From our base in Ayr the practice carries out projects over a wide geographical area from the Orkneys and the Western Isles to Ireland. Our project experience covers the fields of housing, churches, schools, commercial projects, private houses, community and arts buildings. We have developed particular expertise in contemporary sustainable design, specialist conservation works and design for historically sensitive environments.

Our work has received wide recognition through numerous design and environmental awards presented over the years for our new build and conservation works. Regular success in design competitions adds to the practice portfolio.
