OUR STORY

our story

Hamiltons Architects is built on a fifty year track-record of progressive architectural practice.

Commencing in Hitchin, Hertfordshire in 1966, the firm expanded to London in 1971. The firm continued to grow in various markets and, over time, became involved with projects in Germany, Kuwait, Egypt, Libya, Venezuela, Italy, and the USA.
From the early 80’s the firm has largely operated from London – and in 2006 our three London offices were combined into an excitingly modernised old commercial building near Paddington. The ’08 financial crisis saw the firm being fundamentally re-shaped. Hamiltons Architects is now based in modern and conveniently located in the lively design quarter of Clerkenwell adjacent to the financial district of the City.
We are busily engaged on a programme of interesting projects – both in the UK as well as overseas.

OUR APPROACH

  • How we work

  • Team work

  • Fine architecture

  • Conceptual clarity

  • Meeting the budget

  • How we work

    We help our clients formulate their briefs and we make sure that we fully understand our clients’ priorities.

    We produce alternative solutions to enable our clients to establish the appropriate balance for each of their projects between Quality, Cost and Time.

  • Team work

    We believe that the architect should lead the design team during the development of the design. However we work in a transparent and collaborative way with team members having clear roles and responsibilities.

  • Fine architecture

    We aim at an architecture – whatever the budget – that is confident, human in scale , and rich in detail.
    We pay close attention to the context of each project and try to ensure that our approach to urban design seeks a balance between Public and Private interests.

  • Conceptual clarity

    We seek out the “essence” of each project and ensure that the “unifying idea” is expressed consistently throughout the design.

  • Meeting the budget

    We pride ourselves in producing cost-effective solutions to clients’ briefs – while still achieving quality architecture.

OUR TEAM

Our team is our most precious asset.

Each member’s career path is agreed and regularly reviewed.  We encourage individual expression within the studio — especially as this leads individuals to enjoy “taking ownership” of their projects.
The firm operates a flat structure that encourages team members to take more responsibility – and thereby, progress within the firm.
Directors stay with their projects from start to finish and work closely with the project architect in developing the design and ensuring top-quality delivery.
Project architects are the bed-rock of the firm and opportunities are provided to advance, as experience is gained, to take charge of increasingly complex projects.
Assistant architects are also given every opportunity to gain experience and demonstrate their inherent talents.
