Welcome to our site

Keith Renton Architect is an award winning family run practice based in the Scottish Borders carrying out projects throughout the UK

We provide individual services for clients thus creating unique solutions tailored to the requirements of each project. We don’t do “run of the mill.” .

When I gave you that wish list, right at the start, I never imagined you could turn our ruined barn into the perfect embodiment of every single need and want written on it –and more! So it is possible to create a dream home.

I love the new plan/layout, great idea for the larder and the whole space is definitely more usable for our family.

Low Energy

High Design

We are committed to applying our knowledge and expertise, built up over 2 decades, to all projects.

The benefits this brings to our clients are warm, light and comfortable homes that don’t cost the earth to run.

However low energy design does not mean a boring box!

Every building should be both functional and a delight to the eye. We believe in producing designs that bring joy, surprise and please.

New Houses

Every new house is unique. Having no preconceptions or standard house types we are able to fully explore all the options available for each project.


We have considerable experience in the conversion of many types of existing buildings and dwellings from virtual ruins to important listed buildings

Other Works

The range and scope of our work includes alterations and extensions to properties, large and small including one-off buildings such as Summer Houses and Garden Rooms.
