Tyre will oversee a staff of six, with Anne Loh Russo serving as lead senior designer. The Stamford office focuses on corporate and commercial interiors. This focus will continue, with a long-term plan to develop additional studios in other markets.

“I am very excited about the opportunity to lead this team and elevate Amenta Emma’s core mission of bringing world-class design and technical expertise to help solve the challenges our clients face,” said Tyre.

Tyre joined Amenta Emma as senior associate three years ago from his own firm, Tyre Studio Architects. Since then, he has led teams on such projects as the Quinnipiac University Brand Strategy Group, the adaptive reuse and interior transformation of a 19th century house for the organization responsible for the university’s marketing, communications, brand identity and digital initiatives. The Brand Strategy Group has been recognized with numerous design awards and recent publication in Interior Design Magazine and Contract Magazine.

The Stamford team also has been recognized with design awards for other recent interior projects, including Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits, MC Credit Partners and Xylem.

Tyre holds a Master of Architecture degree from Princeton University, where he also has served as a Design Instructor, and a Bachelor of Design degree from the University of Florida.
