Threesixty Architecture appoints former Keppie MD to lead new Perth office
Threesixty Architecture has recruited architect Martin English as a board director to lead the creation of a new Perth studio.
In a move which will involve a significant six figure investment for the practice, Threesixty will also recruit four new designers and move into new premises in the city next month.
The news brings the headcount to 44 and adds to a wealth of experience in the business which has delivered strong profit growth and expects to double turnover this year to £2.5m from existing studios in Glasgow and Inverness.
Alan Anthony, managing director, Threesixty Architecture, said: “Along with my fellow board directors, I am very pleased to welcome Martin to Threesixty. Martin has an exceptional level of experience as a senior leader in the industry for a long time but in addition, he understands the local market and shares our approach to high quality design and first class client care.
“We are moving forward with confidence thanks to the loyalty of our clients from which we have a strong history of repeat work. It’s rewarding to see our projects benefit from the talent of our multi-cultural team who share our work ethics around collaborative working. We perform best as one team enjoying each other’s input and allowing us to deliver the best results for our clients.
“We are now working closely with Martin in the creation of the new Perth studio and we look forward to welcoming a whole new team to the Threesixty family. We may benefit from scale going forward, but I will be working hard to make sure everyone enjoys the feeling of a bigger team working together towards a shared vision.”
Martin English joins a board of six directors in the business after a career in which he was managing director of Keppie Design for eight years. The news also follows the recent appointment of senior architect Anthony Fusi who was recruited to Threesixty after a running a studio in Manchester for a national firm. The combined team over three studios enables the practice to service a growing client list across the UK.
Threesixty was formed eight years ago and is involved in a number of key projects in Scotland including a role as lead designers of the Blackdog Masterplan in Aberdeenshire, a 750,000 sq ft new commercial centre for Ashfield Land which includes retail, leisure, commercial and industrial space.
