Allan Murray Architects

Allan Murray Architects were the masterplanners for Lloyds Banking Group that owned the majority of the Canal site from Edinburgh Quay to Gibson Terrace. The development formed the first buildings that were to be build as part of the masterplan. Previous schemes by other teams had proposed traditional forms that were not in line with the approved masterplan and received a difficult passage through the planning system. AMA were asked to take over the design and proposed a solution that offered to maximise the masterplan planning envelope and increased the building efficiency whilst offering strong placemaking sensibilities and a contemporary architectural image.
