David Soppitt Architect

Architecture from the heart of Scotland. We work for the client, and to work in sympathy with the landscape and the local architecture.

Traditional Architecture

David Soppitt designs traditional architecture that enhances rather than competes with the landscape.

The palette of materials used in our designs reflect the desire for honesty and tradition.

Natural slate, stone, timber and traditional wet dash render dominate.

David Soppitt is a Chartered Architect, holding both RIBA and RIAS Membership with over 25 years experience.

Educated at Edinburgh College of Art ( then part of Heriot Watt University) and on exchange at Rhode Island School of Design, David has long held an interest in the traditional vernacular architecture of Perthshire, his degree project being a study of vernacular architecture in Pitlochry.

“the best architecture works within its context to enhance the landscape or urban setting, it should not compete for attention or reflect the ego of the designer”  David Soppitt
