We are generalists: we believe our work in the commercial world positively grounds that for the arts and community; that our care for the renewal of historic buildings informs our work on sustainable new builds; and that all architecture should be determined by light, connectivity and gathering.

Arts and Culture used as a driver of civic regeneration, often with ground-up, architect-directed, local arts and community organisations.

Malcolm Fraser Architect’s first projects were for local contacts he’d made: restaurateurs whose kitchens he’d worked in; nightclubs where his bands had played. Making connected and humane places for people’s work and play enriches all the practice’s work.

An approach to making homes that is simple and joyful, emphasising shelter, view, connectivity, gathering and community, and focussing on healthy layout and construction.

The integrity of community, understanding the history and climate of a place and the opportunity for futures that are dense, social, mixed and sheltered in all possible ways.

Projects designed and delivered by Malcolm Fraser Architects, which Malcolm led between 1993 and the practice’s dissolution in 2015 and where Robin worked for 10 Years.

Leith Fort Colonies was delivered by Collective Architecture (under the lead of ex-MFA staff), and Bridgend Farmhouse by Halliday Fraser Munro (under the lead of Malcolm Fraser).
