Design Philosophy

AMA is an award winning design-led practice, owned and managed by Michael Vanoli and Robert Clark. Founded in 1985, the practice was an early advocate of intelligent design and energy conservation, winning a number of awards for sustainability.

AMA’s client focused approach to its work is based on good communication and attention to detail. Central to this philosophy is the creation of a clear brief defined by the Architect in collaboration with the client ensuring the most effective outcome.

As a result AMA has developed a number of ongoing relationships with clients and the practice is involved in a number of multi-phase developments in both traditional and Design and Build developments.



Based on expert guidance on Covid-19, AMA have implemented some precautionary measures to protect our colleagues, clients, stakeholders and the wider community.  We will be conducting all external meetings via video conference and ask that people do not visit our office unless it is a matter of grave importance.  We are also asking staff not to attend external meetings or attend other offices.  We are operating remote working where possible.  Please note we remain open for business, we will continue to service all our projects as normal.  Your cooperation is much appreciated in the unprecedented times.
