The Graham-Watts Partnership was established in July 1994 by Bryan Graham and Bob Watts. Collaborating as designers since 1970 and having worked alongside respected architects such as Brighton based John Wells-Thorpe, both partners have gained valuable experience in commercial, residential, industrial, education and ecclesiastical buildings.
As well as continuing to work in these areas, the practice has also gained considerable experience in healthcare.
Our philosophy is relationship driven. We believe good design originates from the architect and the client working in parallel to achieve their perfect solution. Our designers are keen to create buildings that are true to their surroundings, functionally sustainable but most importantly of high architectural quality and unique identity.
Personal flair is intrinsic to our design. Our reputation is based on the skill of our designers and their ability to translate vision into architecture.
Bryan trained as an architect at the Glasgow School of Art whilst working as an apprentice in a Glasgow studio. This gave him a through grounding in building construction, which together with his passion for architectural design enables him to take projects from inception to completion.
