Architects merge to create new studio in Leeds

National firm, Corstorphine + Wright, is merging with Yorkshire’s Architecture 519 to establish a new studio based in Leeds.

The merger will see the creation of a 35-strong architecture studio in Leeds with a live portfolio of projects both regionally and nationally.

It will be led by Directors Nick Baker and Andy Brown, formerly of Architecture 519, and current Corstorphine + Wright Leeds Director, Paul Thrussell.

With the addition of Architecture 519, Corstorphine + Wright will now employ in excess of 190 people nationwide, currently working on over 450 live projects across a diverse range of sectors including residential, industrial, bluelight, offices, education, retail and leisure.

“The joining of forces between Corstorphine + Wright and Architecture 519 signifies a new architectural presence for the Leeds City Region,” said Mr Thrussell.

“The Corstorphine + Wright Leeds team has recently secured high-profile projects in the region and we can now further grow our presence in the City with the enlarged team.

“As a result of the merger, the studio in Leeds has a balanced mix of architects and technologists, ensuring that we deliver with equal expertise both the conceptual stages through to the technical design construction of each project.”
