New Glasgow studio director for HLM Architects

Ryan Sylvester takes on new position

HLM Architects has appointed Ryan Sylvester as Glasgow studio director.

He joins the practice from Keppie Design, one of Scotland’s largest architectural practices, where he worked for eight years.

Sylvester has over 20 years experience overseeing the delivery of large-scale major education, residential, and healthcare projects, as well as contributing to technical and sustainability groups.

And he is skilled at leading multi-disciplinary design teams and working closely with clients to develop designs from early conception stage through to delivery on projects, ranging in value and scale from £3m up to £100m-plus across various procurement routes.

He takes over the role from Lorraine Robertson, who remains in her post as board director.

She said: “It’s been such a fantastic journey building a successful studio in Scotland, including a wide range of amazing clients and award-winning projects.

“I welcome Ryan’s appointment as studio director and look forward to working with him to build on our success to date as my role continues to evolve into a wider UK operational remit.”

Sylvester adds: “It’s a privilege to take up the role in HLM’s Glasgow office, a studio that boasts an award-winning team of people who are at the heart of Scotland’s architecture scene right now.

“As one of the UK’s leading architecture practices, HLM is known for its deep sector insight and ability to get to the core of what people need from their environment.

“I’m excited to take up this new role and build on their many successes.”
