In 2017 Blueprint Architecture was delighted to be awarded the President’s Medal for the refurbishment and extension of a private house near Dornoch from the Inverness Architects Association (IAA) who are the local chapter of the RIAS.

In 2020 the practice was a finalist on BBC Scotland's series 'Scotland's Home of the Year' and Duncan was invited to join his client for filming in Glasgow.

Duncan proved to be a first rate Architect, insightful, perceptive of his Clients needs, and well able to apply his expertise to flesh out the needs of his Client into a good, aesthetically pleasing & workable plan. Able to deal with the ever changing needs and viewpoints of the typical Architects client, and adapt with goodwill & humour to them. Would recommend his expertise to any person venturing into the confusing world of self build, or turn key build project.

Working with Duncan has been a delight from start to finish. From our first meeting until the day we moved in Duncan has been inspirational and innovative, calm and kept us to clear plans. Despite all the TV shows we had no drama, no nasty surprises and Duncan worked brilliantly with our contractors. We had regular meetings (and lots of coffee) and that meant he kept us all on time... and budget!"
