Allan Murray Architects rebrands as AMA Studio

New brand: Billy Duncan, Conor Pittman, Kenny McNally and Tim Blathwayt,

An architecture practice that has been involved in several high profile city-centre developments in Edinburgh is rebranding.

Founded in 1994 as Allan Murray Architects, it will become AMA Studio, a move that follows its switch to employee ownership last year.

The practice has played a key role in big projects such as the £1 billion St James Quarter, New Waverley and the new Boroughmuir High School. 

Following a robust financial year given the challenging conditions of the pandemic, the practice is targeting a period of sustained growth, with an expected pipeline of projects across the UK.

Conor Pittman, managing director, said: “The core of the business will always be in Edinburgh, working on the integration of contemporary design within a historic setting. 

“That work is now being recognised on a national level, which is helping us expand outward from our traditional ‘urbanist’ label and secure more varied work across the UK – in rural and urban areas and across leisure, office, retail and residential.
