Lorna Agorastos

Lorna graduated from the University of Sheffield School of Architecture (BA Hons) in 2002 and went on to complete her studies at Leeds School of Architecture in 2005 before qualifying as a chartered architect in 2006. She has worked in practice in England and Scotland, designing and delivering a variety of education, residential, commercial, and community projects for clients ranging from local authorities and universities to private homeowners. 

She has designed car-stack skyscrapers and chapels, loves window seats and built-in joinery, and believes there is no such thing as too much storage. 

Lorna is registered with the ARB and is a member of both the RIAS and RIBA. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, cycling, swimming, and spending time with her two daughters.

Practice Ideology

AGORA is based in Edinburgh and works across Scotland and the wider UK. They design unique homes and consider extensions, sensitive alterations to listed properties, transformational renovations, educational projects, and commercial and retail environments. 

They are an RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) and RIAS (Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland) Chartered Practice, and all of their architects are ARB (Architects Registration Board) registered and members of RIAS and RIBA. Sustainability is an important part of their practice, and they are also members of SEDA (Scottish Ecological Design Association).
