ISA – Name Change
Practice Announcement from ISA:
We have some big changes planned for Ian Springford Architects this year and I wanted to share these with you. We’re starting the new year with a bang and changing our name, address and appearance!
We have decided that now is the right time to change our name from ‘Ian Springford Architects’ to ‘ISA’ . We believe the abbreviated name better reflects the joint contribution that everyone in the practice makes to its ongoing success.
Our new name takes effect from 1st February but email and mailing addresses will remain the same.
We now employ 20 architects, designers and assistants and our current home at Kings Stables Road has started to become a little small for us. We will be moving to larger premises at 4-5 Blenheim Place, Edinburgh at the beginning of April.
The new premises will give us more space for further growth along with better meeting and staff facilities. We’ll send out full details closer to our move-in date and hope you’ll pay us a visit.
To coincide with our new name and new office, we have given our graphic identity a bit of a makeover. The new graphics are an evolution of our current branding and will start to appear over the coming weeks.
We are also working on a completely new website which will showcase more of our work as well as being tablet and mobile friendly. We hope to launch the site in the next month or so and will let you know as soon as it’s ready.
WE’RE ALWAYS HAPPY TO HEAR FROM YOU. CONTACT US AT MAIL@ISARCHITECTS.CO.UK OR AT THE FOLLOWING OFFICES;
