Architects Volume 2

Charles Peter Womersley (1923-1993), known as Peter Womersley, is widely considered to be one of the most visionary architects working in Scotland in the later half of the 20th century. His legacy rests on a relatively small but diverse body of work, moving from modular timber houses in the early years through to sculptural use of reinforced concrete in his later career. All his work shows great attention to detail.

Following a thematic study carried out by Historic Environment Scotland in 2007, four of the best examples of his work in Scotland have been recognised through listing.
