Basic Biographical Details

Bio Notes: Andrew Merrylees was born on 13 October 1933 and studied at the School of Architecture, Glasgow School of Art, remaining there to complete a diploma in town planning. He was a student assistant in the practice of Basil Spence & Partners in 1952 and had been promoted to architect in 1957, although he was not admitted ARIBA until 1959. In the following year he set up his own practice, Merrylees & Morrison (though the identity of Morrison has yet to be established). This practice ceased in 1963.

In 1968 he was appointed associate in the Spence firm, by then known as Sir Basil Spence, Glover & Ferguson. At that time John Hardie Glover was the firm's senior partner, Spence having retired that year and Ferguson having died three years before. Merrylees was taken into partnership in 1972, followed by John M Legge in 1973.

Merrylees left the Spence firm in 1985 to set up his own practice as Andrew Merrylees Associates, which became Andrew Merrylees, Grierson & Robertson in 1994 and Merrylees & Robertson in November 1997. In January 2001 the practice was merged with Hypostyle Architects.
