John Simpson— Technical Designer

John Simpson

John spent the first eight years of his career living and working in Belize, Central America, where he had the unique opportunity to work on a wide range of interesting and unique projects such as designing luxury treehouse accommodation and swimming pools deep in the rainforest as well as high end resorts for the likes of Francis Ford Coppola.

Having returned to his home town of Edinburgh in 2011, he previously worked for a successful Edinburgh practice where he was a key member of the team for the redevelopment of Advocate’s Close, which won many awards including the RIAS Andrew Doolan Award for Best Building in Scotland 2014 and the RICS UK project of the year for 2015.

Since joining the LBA team John is relishing the opportunity to put his strong technical design skills to good use.  He is also glad of the excuse of a slightly longer commute as a chance to get in some extra cycling.
