Allford Hall Monaghan Morris
Working on the new Google campus in King’s Cross would be a dream job for most architecture practices, but Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) has a long history of working for such prestigious clients.
The international business has worked on diverse projects that range from London’s BBC Television Centre and Scotland Yard headquarters to the University of Amsterdam’s law campus. It also exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 2014.
Since AHMM first opened more than 20 years ago, the practice has cemented its reputation for producing aesthetically desirable yet functional buildings. “Our focus has always been on the quality of our work, its clarity of concept, its intelligence of thinking and the delivery of the building itself,” says Managing Director Peter Morris. This approach has garnered several awards along the way, including the Architectural Practice of the Year 2013.
320 – The workforce of AHMM – which has tripled since 2008
With commercial success and an ever-expanding roster of clients, the business has tripled in size since 2008 to a workforce of 320. Peter puts AHMM’s success partly down to its ability to create work in true collaboration with clients.
A cleverly diversified portfolio has also meant that the practice has been able to weather economic challenges. “We don’t specialise in one type of building but retain a broad spread of work across public and private sectors, in the UK and abroad. This diversity has enabled us to grow during all phases of the economic cycle,” says Peter.
