A2H Acquires Red Chair Architects

Memphis-based A2H, a collaborative planning and design firm with offices across Tennessee and North Mississippi, has acquired Knoxville-based architecture and planning firm Red Chair Architects.

A2H completed the acquisition of Red Chair Architects in July of 2019, and the combined practice now operates as a single entity — with five offices across all three of Tennessee’s grand divisions.

“A key part of the A2H’s strategy has been to expand our presence into Middle and East Tennessee. We have admired the firm’s work for several years, so when they approached us about acquiring the firm, we knew it would be a natural fit,” says A2H President Logan Meeks. “Both A2H and Red Chair place great value in understanding the importance of how the built environment is planned, designed, constructed, and utilized,” Meeks went on to say. “This unique opportunity to expand into East Tennessee through an established, known entity allows us to quickly execute our strategy.”
