Gordon is a founding Director of pioneering national timber panel manufacturer Ligna Alba and has set up www.theboilerhouseproject.com repurposing an existing building to harness the embodied energy therein. In his practice ethos and life outlook Gordon espouses the ideals of his mentor and Great Uncle, Arthur Woodburn, a pacifist and conscientious objector who was jailed in WW1 and who eventually rose to the position of Secretary of State for Scotland in 1947, co-founding the NHS, namely: diplomacy, a social conscience and an ability not to prejudge people. Gordon distinguishes himself as an architect who listens to the client and forms a response based on craft, heritage and delight.
