About Guy Morgan
Guy Morgan is a Director of Morgan Mcdonnell Architecture, an award winning Architect Practice based in Edinburgh.
Having grown up in the West-coast seaside town of Largs, Guy `escaped` to Edinburgh to study in the 1980s, and following a `near death experience` with Quantity Surveying at Heriot Watt University, graduated with a 1st in Architecture from Edinburgh College of Art in the mid 90`s.
Armed with boundless enthusiasm and almost luminous green naivety, Guy immediately set about establishing Morgan McDonnell with fellow graduate Anthony McDonnell in 1996.
The Practice`s work today covers a variety of sectors including residential, hotel/serviced apartment, office, bar and restaurant and varies in size and scale from small domestic house extensions on remote Scottish islands to multi million pound urban regeneration projects.
Recent Award wins include the RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award and the RICS Grand Final UK Project of the Year.
Edinburgh based craft brewer Innis & Gunn commissioned Morgan McDonnell to design a new concept bar/restaurant which could be rolled out, initially in Scotland, then further afield.
In line with the Innis & Gunn ethos, the concept focuses on the quality and flavour of the food and drink offer, whilst the interiors provide comfort and texture using a palette of natural materials.
The first Beer Kitchen opened in Edinburgh in August 2015. The second and third will follow in Spring 2016....
