Malcolm Fraser and Robin Livingstone reunite behind new practice
January 30 2019
Architects Malcolm Fraser and Robin Livingstone have reunited behind a new practice four years on from the closure of Malcolm Fraser Architects in August 2015.
Livingstone worked at MFA for a decade before moving onto 7N Architects but will now come full circle as a founding partner in Fraser/Livingstone Architects. Fraser meanwhile has spent the intervening years working for Halliday Fraser Munro and has been a leading champion of RIAS reform.
Building on their shared history the new practice has already secured a wide body of work ranging from a community business hub in Glasgow’s Kinning Park Complex to a distillery on the Isle of Barra and a new extension to The Thackray Medical Museum in Leeds.
In a statement the practice wrote: “Fraser/Livingstone Architects will build on our heritage to make new buildings and environments that are rooted in place and the progressive principle that climate, openness and gathering remain central to our wellbeing.
“We will also continue to advocate for architecture to put social responsibility at its heart, with its professionalism at the service of the health and wellbeing of society and the wider care we all must take of the environment.”
The practice is seeking a newly qualified architect or part 2 assistant to help with this workload, with prospective candidates invited to get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org
