ARPL Architects





Welcome to Martin Schlecter

ARPL are pleased to welcome Martin who has joined the practice as an Associate. Martin who trained at Hull School of Architecture, was the last remaining partner of MGP Architects where he had been for 18 years following 6 years with East Ayrshire Council. He brings project experience working with new build and existing buildings with private housing developments, community health care, hospitality and leisure facilities, commercial, small retail and industrial units.

Our current workload has been expanding particularly in the housing development sector and conversion of Dunlop House and Ballochmyle House, both listed buildings,  demonstrates a growing  recovery in the residential market.

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.

While you are here, please visit our project gallery where you can see many of the projects we have worked on and some case studies.
