I am Jonathan Thomas, but you can also call me Jonny, and I am currently working as an Architect and Senior 3D Visualiser at Michael Laird Architects and Associate lecturer at Napier University. I currently live in Edinburgh, Scotland with my wife and three-year old son, having move back in 2012 from living and working in New York City.
I love design of all stages, from the concept sketch to the completed product and my work, both in larger practices and on an individual basis, has been featured in international magazines, websites, seminars and exhibitions as well as winning national and regional design awards both in the UK and USA.
Outside of the office, I am currently tutoring Second and Final year students of Napier University’s Interior and Spatial Design program in both a design and visualisation role. In my time in the States, I was an active member of the ACE Mentorship program, holding weekly classes to mentor High School students who are interested in pursuing a career in Architecture, Construction and Engineering.
The balance between practice and education has always been a strong passion of mine and continuing to mentor, critique and advise newer members to the profession allows me to stay up-to-date with contemporary architectural practice and gain valuable experiences in return. This to-and-fro is invaluable to my work and will continue to be an essential part of my career.
