Morris and Steedman

Morris and Steedman was an architecture firm based in Edinburgh, Scotland. The firm was founded by James Shepherd Morris (1931–2006) and Robert Russell Steedman (born 1929) in the 1950s.

The pair are best known for their private houses in the Modernist style, built during the 1950s and 1960s, described as “arguably the most important series of 20th century houses by a single practice in Scotland”. Both founders retired in 2002, although their architecture practice continues as Morris and Steedman Associates.

Several of their buildings are now listed, and seven of their works were included on the list of 100 best modern Scottish buildings published by Prospect magazine in 2005.
