Lynne Cox | Director
Lynne became a Director of Roots in 2015 to help grow and develop the company. This followed her training in business leadership, entrepreneurship and marketing at the Babson College in Boston as one of the selected applicants for the 2012 Saltire Fellowship.
Lynne has worked with Roots on key projects since the company was established before formally joining the team in 2013. She received a Masters in Architecture with Distinction from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow in 2009. Lynne’s strengths as an architectural designer and her understanding of business development enable her to actively push the company forward on both fronts.
In 2011 Lynne established Tog Studio with Micheal Holliday & Richard Campbell. Tog Studio is a ‘live-build’ school that provides architects, engineers, and anyone interested in building, with an opportunity to collaborate first-hand on a live construction project. Now in its 6th year and run entirely by Roots Architecture, Tog Studio has delivered multi-award winning architecture including 'The Noust' Community Boathouse for Tiree that gained national recognition, and a Scottish Design Award & Glasgow Institute of Architects Design Award.
Lynne is a creative individual who enjoys taking on complex design challenges. Through the Tog Studio projects she has developed a flare for practical problem solving on site and a sound knowledge of how to build and work with a variety of materials for an extreme Atlantic climate. This can be seen most notably through her leading role in the construction of the first Tog House.
Having also worked in the public sector producing national architecture exhibitions for Architecture + Design Scotland, as marketing strategist for MAKAR a leading ecological building manufacturer, architectural designer for McLean Architects and a Growth Plan Coordinator for Tiree Community Development Trust, Lynne brings a mix of professional experience to the team.
