née gibson architects was born of its predecessor, Richard Gibson Architects in 2022. Richard Gibson Architects was founded by its namesake in 1972 to respond to a need for a locally based architectural service, previously provided remotely from mainland Scotland. Over 50 years the practice has developed a unique wealth of experience of building in the harsh Shetland climate, has endured the difficulties, and enjoyed the benefits of working in a remote island such as Shetland.
In 2011 the practice became a limited company with long serving architects Nick Brett and Adrian Wishart joining Richard Gibson as directors, Richard and Nick retired in 2016 and 2019. As the practice enters its 50th successful year, it was renamed née gibson architects with Adrian Wishart at the helm.
née gibson architects is a trading name for Richard Gibson Architects Ltd.
Richard Gibson Architects Ltd is a company registered in Scotland - No. SC395919
