Welcome To cmm Architects

Carrick McCormack McIntyre Architects (cmm), established in Glasgow in 1999 has a wide range of experience across the UK.


The practice works in many fields including social housing, leisure, education, healthcare, commercial, residential buildings and the arts. We have considerable specialist experience in glass design and cladding systems in addition to our extensive experience of working directly for building contractors on residential, commercial and educational projects.


We design and produce high quality buildings to meet our clients’ needs in all respects: visually, environmentally, technically, on time and on budget. We recognise that this involves the work of a team. Our aim on every project is to establish close working relationships with the contractor and the other disciplines involved.


Our design method involves close dialogue with the client. We regard the brief for a building as crucial. We aim to explore and develop this with our clients to ensure that the design of a building grows out of a shared understanding of the needs that it will satisfy This has to be achieved amidst the constraints of a realistic and practical world. There are inevitable tensions between what is desirable and what is possible; between what one would like to achieve and what one can afford. The design process aims to close these gaps using such constraints as a springboard for ideas and invention from which solutions develop. Solutions, which give rise to coherent, functional and efficient buildings appropriate to the activities that they will contain and represent.
