Timothy Smith and Jonathan Taylor Architects was established in 2010. Current projects include a housing development in East London, an artist’s studio and several residential conversions and refurbishments. We offer a full range of architecture and design services, from conception to delivery. We can draw on the services of a wide range of consultants with whom we have an ongoing relationship, including engineers, building control specialists, historic building and conservation consultants and others.

While the approach of our office to each design project responds to its individual brief and specific existing conditions, there are interests which are common to all projects. We consider that it is possible to have a creative modern architecture with traditional virtues, a respect for history and freedom from cant; at once recognisable and unfamiliar. Balance, proportion, character, intrigue and wit are central to our work.

Both partners teach a postgraduate design unit at Kingston School of Art, London, where Timothy is also director of the MArch Architecture course. This academic environment provides opportunities for reflection and intellectual rigour, which in turn informs our practice. In 2022 the partners were awarded the prestigious Arthur Ross Award for Education at a ceremony in New York City.

The practice was featured in the Architecture Foundation’s publication ‘New Architects 3’, the definitive survey of the best practices formed in the last 10 years. Projects by the practice have been exhibited in the Lisbon Architecture Triennale and the partners have lectured in the UK, Europe and USA. In 2021 they were awarded the RIBA Traditional Architecture Group’s Achievement Award.
