Practise Statement

We only take on projects that appeal to our passion and expertise in working with and alongside older buildings. This ensures that for these chosen projects we are absolutely dedicated to delivering the highest quality design solutions to meet our clients brief and budget.

Building before construction

Jonathan Tuckey Design is one of the UKs leading advocates for remodelling and radically transforming old buildings for modern uses. Being based in London, a city of historical context with modern needs and demands, we enthusiastically embrace an architecture of change. We enjoy juxtaposing contemporary elements with some original features of an existing building to give an exciting and dynamic new use. We have successfully applied this approach to international projects in France, Italy, Germany, the US and Switzerland, where we recently opened our second office. Our clients range from schools, councils, businesses, and charitable trust foundations. We approach all our projects individually; balancing the historical context of what already exists with careful listening to what clients require and want to feel about the finished space.

How we work

Unlike most architects today we explore and develop our ideas through actual models. We believe that this process is the best way to develop the design and communicate our ideas to our clients. It enables a clearer visualisation of the project, thus serving to extend concepts far beyond the excepted through discussion and collaboration, via the model, with the client.

We embrace collaboration within all of our projects. Those we undertake overseas are conducted in partnership with a local practise whose local expertise consistently proves invaluable from the outset through to project completion. We foster excellent working relations with specialists in other fields including landscape architects, craftsmen, and tradesmen.

Sustainability is at the heart of all our projects. We bring old buildings up to modern environmental standards using local materials in innovative ways. This means we recycle buildings and minimise demolition; thus being both more cost-efficient and more environmentally friendly.
