The Team / James Mason BArch (Hons), Dip Arch


James joined Richard Murphy Architects in March 1997 to be part of the team working on the award-winning Dundee Contemporary Arts.  Following this, he was Project Architect for the Jack Kilby Computing Centre at Edinburgh Napier University and the master-plan for their Merchiston Campus.

Continuing to work within the education sector, James subsequently led our teams throughout the master-planning & redevelopment of the Stratford Campus of The University of East London, completing three new-build projects as well as several refit areas with a combined value of £25 million, and then for Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge at their new Young Street and existing East Road Campuses, with a combined construction value of some £40m, including a major new science teaching faculty and specialist nursing facilities for their dept of Health & Social Care.  James has also been our Project Director for our proposals at Jesus College, Cambridge; our master-planning and site work for the Edinburgh Academy at both their Junior and Senior Schools and the second phase of redevelopment of Coatbridge College Campus in North Lanarkshire.

Alongside work in education, James has worked in the arts on the award-winning Galeri, performing arts centre in Caernarfon, North Wales, where the practice not only designed the original building but successfully returned for two further phases, adding to the 400 seat theatre facilities and latterly, two new cinemas and foyer space within a new build extension.  

Currently James is working on the Grade A listed former Royal High School in Edinburgh combining both sensitive restoration as well as new build facilities to provide a National Centre for Music and home to the St Mary’s Music School.
