planning in S2 Architecture Ltd office

About Us

S2 Architecture Ltd (S2) was formed in 2018. With it’s infancy, S2 undertook a number of domestic projects, delivering a high quality of service and subsequently gained a trusted reputation through word of mouth, that afforded the practice the opportunity to work on over 100 small projects. Given such accelerated growth, S2 acquired a new office space in January 2021 and continue to grow the practice and portfolio of projects. With the use of social media and enhancing their reputation within the local area, S2 continued to be appointed on several new projects daily.

Having successfully delivered several domestic projects whilst offering a proven track record of exemplary service, S2 were nominated by a client as ‘Best Architects’ at the Scottish Home Improvement Awards 2021.

Whilst being extremely successful on domestic projects, S2 were keen to expand into larger projects aligned to past experience in affordable housing and gain reputation within the sector. A pivotal point in the growth of S2, was our appointment to design one of the current largest scale full affordable projects in Glasgow at Myreside Street. From this position of strength, S2 are also working on further affordable housing development in various areas as well as residential developments in local authorities.
