Catrìona Macdonald

2013 - present

"Architecture is an experiential, existential thing: one of memory, space and association. It’s with that we react, create and bring a personal, sincere sensibility to our projects."

Catrìona joined Page\Park in 2013 after graduating with a Masters in Advanced Architectural Design (with distinction) from the University of Strathclyde.

Catrìona has a leading role in our Briefing and Interiors group, and has a strong portfolio of community and wellbeing projects. Her most notable project to date is the University of Edinburgh’s Health and Wellbeing Centre, where she was project architect though all stages of design and construction. Catriona has also worked on the phased transformation of Arlington Baths and the restoration of Dunoon Burgh Hall, which won best Rescue of an Historic Building at the Scottish Heritage Angel Awards 2018.

During her Post-Graduate tenure, Catrìona also studied at Chalmers University in Sweden, furthering her interest in the relationship between architecture and identity in northern Europe. The connection between people and place formed the basis for her award-winning dissertation, and provided the catalyst to co-found  research and design collective Lateral North, co-authoring the first dedicated Atlas of Scotland since the 19th century.

Catrìona has also contributed to a number of discussions on architecture for Gaelic media, and continues to teach on the Masters in Advanced Architectural Design course at the University of Strathclyde.
