Design Approach

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

Led by Tim Hatton 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.

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.
