It will not be a surprise to many people that the back catalogue of commercial projects for the practice is vast.  The extent of industrial projects and offices is evident throughout the history of the firm with many projects for household names.

The volume of archive material is so large that it is now held at Glasgow City Council archives, which are housed in the Mitchell Library.  We are routinely approached by various students, archivists, researchers and private clients seeking access to the material.  Please contact the office directly if any of the archive material is of interest.


A simple summary of the some of the more recent office projects has been supplied below;

  • Citizens Advice Bureau

  • East Ayrshire Council

  • Mahle Engine Systems

  • NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde

  • Northern Constabulary

  • GlaxoSmithKline

The partners would be happy to provide testimonials or further examples of specific projects on request so whether it's new build or the upgrading or refurbishment of existing buildings, Wylie Shanks Architects can support you through the process from inception to completion.


Once nicknamed the ‘factory factory’ the practice boasts to having designed more industrial floor space over the years than any other architect in Scotland. With a host of international and ‘household’ named clients such as;

  • Levi Strauss

  • Mirror Group

One aspect that the above contracts can demonstrate is the variety of forms of contract and appointment upon which we have been engaged in recent years.  Whilst the majority of our contracts are still traditionally appointed and procured we currently have NEC3 and D&B appointments ongoing.
