David Wilson – Room Architects
David Wilson studied at the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture in Aberdeen where he gained an Honours degree in Interior Architecture and a post-graduate diploma in Advanced Architectural studies. His year out experience was spent at a small design practice in Aberdeenshire where he gained a solid grounding in the execution of domestic new build and extension work.
Following graduation, David moved to the Isle of Skye to work for a celebrated architecture practice where he was involved in numerous domestic projects. David’s interest in contemporary Scottish design was developed during this time.
In 2002 David moved to Glasgow to work in a large design practice which specialised in urban regeneration, large scale housing developments and specialist education buildings. David worked on a number of projects including a new college building for UHI and a new Museum and visitors centre in the Highlands.
David moved back to Aberdeen in 2006 to work for George Watt & Stewart where the project load was mostly in the university sector. David worked on the refurbishment of the zoology building and on the construction of a new university research building in Aberdeenshire.
In 2007 David took a position as a design Architect at McColl Architects where he worked on high quality, bespoke domestic extensions as well as working on proposals for a cook school.
David realised his dream of running his own practice when he started room architects in 2008. The aim of the practice was to concentrate on the delivery of high quality domestic and commercial projects. David’s interests since starting room architects have been in providing contemporary scottish architecture involving clean lines, simple forms and high quality materials.
Besides his practice work, David Wilson is a part time tutor and lecturer at the Scott Sutherland School in Aberdeen where he teaches building technology and construction.
