Our History

T.H.E. was created in 2020 after our directors, Peter Thain, Daniel Harrington and Nicola Edward had previously worked together at a practice that was moving its base from Aberdeen. Passionate about staying local to the region, Peter, Daniel and Nicola decided to open their own chartered practice for architectural and planning services in Aberdeen.

Since then, the business has moved from strength to strength, serving not only the North East of Scotland but the Central Belt, Highlands and Islands as well as delivering on projects in England.
