Sonya Linskaill

Sonya Linskaill is a RIAS Conservation Accredited Architect, working as a sole practitioner and heritage consultant.

Sonya studied design at Glasgow School of Art before training as an Architect.

After several years working in private architectural practice in both Glasgow and Edinburgh, Sonya gained an MSc in European Urban Conservation in 2005.  She went on to manage the Stirling City Heritage Trust from 2007-2020, latterly with responsibility for design and delivery of the Traditional Buildings Health Check (TBHC), a proactive repair and preventative maintenance scheme which supports traditional building owners.

In her work as a sole practitioner, Sonya has gained experience working in Scotland’s historic built environment including conservation area assessment and management, building repair and adaptation, project funding, and community outreach.  She is increasingly interested in the role of historic areas and traditional buildings in the broader placemaking and sustainability agendas, as well as ways to overcome obstacles to their implementation in practical terms.

Sonya currently represents the Stirling Society of Architects on the RIAS Conservation Committee.
