Michael Laird Architects

According to the MLA website, Michael Laird left the office of William Kininmonth in 1954, and started in practice with partner Will Redpath under the name Structor. In 1957, the partnership dissolved, and Michael Laird Architects was created, trading out of Castle Street and, with the need for more space, moved to Moray place in 1960.

New staff members were joining the practice thick and fast as the workload increased with jobs such as George Watson’s music school (1964) and an extension for Standard Life on St Andrew Square (1968) keeping the practice busy. The company changed to Michael Laird & Partners in 1967.

More work meant an increasing amount of staff, and in 1972 the main architectural part of the office moved to the current premises on 5 Forres Street. Highlights in this decade included the King’s Buildings for Edinburgh University and another extension for Standard Life, this time on George Street.
