AAmp is an interdisciplinary design studio positioned at the intersection of architecture & media.
We focus on design at multiple scales to create unique experiences. These range from brand identity, to residential, commercial & cultural spaces.
We pride ourselves on an innovative and accessible approach to design: from initial concept to realization, we work closely with our clients to develop creative solutions tailored to their needs.
In short, we believe design is a cultural experience that is beautiful, democratic and fun — so, let’s do it!
