Introducing our sister company, Residency.

Written by Andrew Martin | December 2020 
The High Street has changed
Over the past 20 years, AMD has had the privilege of creating bespoke retail environments for some the world’s most interesting and innovative brands including Jigsaw, Anthropologie and The Conran Shop. In this time, we’ve seen the retail industry evolve, adapt and change significantly – meaning there’s been a dramatic change in the way people shop.
As a result, retailers aren’t always prepared to invest in expensive, long lease bricks and mortar, leaving many retail units across the UK empty. This situation has been intensified by the current Covid-19 crisis and now more than ever, it’s time to innovate to secure the future of high street.
Residency: Bringing a new dimension to retail
Whilst AMD caters for long-lease and bespoke retail environments, Residency is a revolutionary temporary retail solution. Through the use of state-of-the-art projectors, illumination, digital screens and reusable fixtures and fittings, Residency creates sustainable pop-up shop spaces, which can be rebranded easily within seconds.
Found only in the UK’s most coveted high streets and developments, Residency provides the perfect canvas for a pop-up, brand experiment or a physical counterpoint to e-commerce – as well an opportunity to test out new, vibrant shopping destinations.


“Our hope is that by creating easy to inhabit, cost-effective and flexible retail spaces, we can provide an attractive solution to bricks and mortar retailing. With physical retail being a space hard hit by Covid-19, now more than ever, we feel compelled to support our industry.” Andrew Martin, AMD & Residency Founder.
