Kerr Blyth
Director
Kerr trained at the Glasgow School of Art and was a founding member of design consultancy Studio Arc. He later joined Malcolm Fraser Architects as an associate for several years and following the successful completion of major high profile projects around the UK left in 2001 to set up KBA+D. The business has become well established in Interior Design particularly in the Leisure Sector.

Kerr is a strong believer in bringing out the best in people and is delighted that KBA+D’s new Associates will take the business forward to the next level.
