HAB Architecture was founded in 2021 by Marc Hislop and Fiona Beedie, leading from a successful start via the local architectural firm, WD Blair Associates.
Marc and Fiona first met in working practice, some eight years ago whilst working at WD Blair Associates and between them bring over thirty years experience in the construction industry.
Sharing similar values in life and working practice, HAB aim to create welcoming and friendly places for people.
Natural Habitat: “is a place in nature where a particular species calls home”. Designing traditional architecture with a contemporary twist, let HAB Architecture enhance your natural habitat through design.
