AMA Studio

AMA Studio
AMA Studio is a design-led architectural practice based in Edinburgh. AMA Studio became an Employee-Owned Trust in April 2020 as an evolution of the award-winning practice Allan Murray Architects, founded in 1996.

Our Approach
We aim to create inspirational buildings and public spaces, that enhance the wellbeing of present and future generations where they live work and play.

Our passionate and skilled design team demonstrate integrity and quality in all our work, seeking an understanding of the project from inception, striving to deliver great architecture that benefits the wider community. Many of our most rewarding projects arise from a variety of sectors - we welcome challenging and ambitious projects of any scale - providing design expertise from early concept stage through to project delivery and completion.

We always consider the wider site context, using an innovative and imaginative design methodology that aims to capture new public spaces and create buildings with a sense of belonging that leave a positive impression on the wider community. Our projects will have a long-lasting impact on the surrounding environment, and we have always taken this responsibility seriously.

We aim to be 'good ancestors', designing buildings that are accountable in the long-term: minimising energy use, reducing carbon emissions and making better use of the world’s precious resources. Our buildings incorporate intelligent environmental control and utilise sustainably sourced materials and construction methods where possible as a fundamental part of the design.
