Design. Build. Share.

Creative Cassels offers design, build and education services to individual clients, communities, social enterprises and charitable organisations. I place importance on natural and sustainable building materials and encourage traditional building skills and crafts while exploring new products and techniques of building.

I have a BArch undergraduate degree from the Mackintosh School of Architecture, at the Glasgow School of Art and a DipArch postgraduate degree in Advanced Energy and Environmental Studies from the Graduate School of the Environment, at the Centre for Alternative Technology.

Combined with my skills in management, and construction experience, including trade skills such as carpentry, masonry and ground works, I design, build and create many products, from graphic design, jewellery, and buildings. I work part-time for a local Architectural firm and am the Vice Chair of the Scottish Ecological Design Association.

“My passion is working with volunteers and unskilled workers which has given me a drive to make building more attainable to the every (wo)man and I use a lot of my time and resources into making this happen. I prefer to work with natural building materials, and aim to build low impact buildings wherever possible.”
