Design Approach

Timothy Hatton Architects has a reputation for excellence in design and delivery spanning more than twenty-five years.

Led by Tim Hatton, Clive Pendlebury and Correna Mitchell the work of the practice has been primarily but not exclusively in the private residential and bespoke commercial sector.

The practice combines a sensitive approach to contemporary architecture with a knowledgeable and sympathetic understanding of historical buildings.

Timothy Hatton Architects always puts the end user at the centre of its architectural thinking, a philosophy that is supported by theoretical discussion and academic research and which lies behind every design concept.

The projects of the practice are a testament to the architectural ideas that result from its continuous analysis of how people, places and spaces interact. This rigorous approach leads to buildings of the highest architectural quality that respond to the spirit of place and are environmentally responsible.

Based in London and working on projects that are both in the UK and abroad, the practice pays close attention to all aspects of delivery, in particular project cost, construction time and, of course, the quality of both design and construction itself.

Each project team is careful to align the processes of design and delivery to suit individual client needs and the practice puts strong emphasis on managing effective communication between all parties from start to finish.

Tim read architecture at Cambridge University, graduating in 1976 with a first class degree.

After a year working with Professor Colin St. John Wilson on the new British Library, he completed his diploma in architecture on an exchange programme at Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Tim then worked for four years with Jose Lluis Sert in Boston before returning to London for a further period of work with Colin St. John Wilson & Partners and later with Powell & Moya.

Clive Pendlebury BSc (Hons) Dip. Arch (Lond) RIBA

Clive studied architecture at University College London, graduating in 1987. He was elected a member of the ARB and RIBA in 1989 after receiving the Peter S Newton Prize for Professional Practice.

Clive joined Timothy Hatton Architects in 1987 for 3 years assisting in the early stages of development of the practice and gaining invaluable experience of the construction process at close quarters. He then spent 5 years in a key position in an architectural practice working on various projects in the newly emerging London Docklands and healthcare projects in East London.

Clive rejoined THA in 1995 and was invited to become a director in 2001.

Clive’s depth of knowledge and experience are invaluable assets to the practice. He acts as a technical adviser on all practice projects and is currently implementation director of active projects totalling a build value of over £65 million.

Correna Mitchell

Correna has worked at Timothy Hatton Architects for over 16 years, working in various roles at the company and she was appointed a director of the company in 2018. As Practice Director, she is closely involved with all projects undertaken by the practice, providing a key point of liaison between the client and architectural teams. She has a comprehensive knowledge of what it takes to deliver a project, from inception to completion and combines this with her interpersonal skills to provide the highest level of client care.

With previous roles in the voluntary and non-profit sector, including setting up the Birmingham branch of the Prince’s Trust and work in the early ‘dot com’ industry, Correna’s interest has always been in the creative industries allied with a keen eye for customer engagement and people management.

Correna also oversees THA’s expanding Interior Design activities, enabling the practice to offer a full architectural interior design service to its clients.
