Ross was educated at The University of Dundee where he obtained his Masters in Architecture, awarded with Distinction. He previously obtained a HND in Architectural Technology at Dundee and Angus College.
After obtaining BA in Architecture with Distinction at Dundee, Ross undertook a Part 1 placement as an architectural assistant in the Middle East. He had exposure to projects of varying scales and value along with interdisciplinary experience in Architecture, Masterplanning and Landscape Teams.
His Masters Thesis titled ‘Character through Typologies’, studied the impact which urban response, architectural form and language can have on both the immediate context of place and user, and the wider impact on the memory associated with the city. This theme forms some of the basis for how he approaches and designs architecture in practice.
His architectural narrative is centred around creating thoughtful and ‘needed’ architecture which has a positive impact on the user while being the result of a clear contextual approach. He believes design which aims to be sustainable, while praising the details and materiality, should be the goal of all architecture. Great architecture should celebrate the small moments equally with the big ideas.
