TateHindle Architects

Story

TateHindle is an award-winning architecture and design practice based in London. We work with high-profile clients and have completed many interesting and challenging projects across a variety of sectors. Our portfolio includes innovative new builds and the sensitive restoration of listed buildings. We create spaces that inspire people to work, learn and create; we establish sustainable communities and design beautiful buildings for everyone to enjoy.

The practice was formed in 1992 by Andrew Tate and James Hindle. Their shared passion and experience provided the perfect foundation to set up a design focused architectural firm with strong commercial acumen. The early days were spent in a design studio off Oxford Circus, but rapid growth and success prompted our move to a larger, more design-orientated studio in the historic Smithfield Market.

The company has continued to expand with the addition of Directors Mike Jamieson, Harish Ratna and Sarah Brown. We now have over 60 architects, interior designers and technicians at the practice.

Approach

At the heart of our practice is a desire to produce contextual, environmentally responsible design that is honest, accessible and understands the past whilst embracing the future. We provide innovative design solutions through a unique combination of design and commercial understanding.

Our approach to design is responsive. Our clients' aspirations inspire our designs along with the context of the site and our commercial perspective. We consider every detail of a project and remain 'hands-on' throughout the process. We adopt a pragmatic approach to problems, fully understanding the client's objectives and working in collaboration with the team to create optimum design solutions.

We place particular emphasis on buildability and delivery to budget and programme. Our systems support the design process and include design and technical reviews in a workshop format where schemes are tested and developed.

Team

We became an Employee Owned Trust in 2016. We have always taken a collaborative approach to design at TateHindle and this restructure highlights our belief that our employees are at the heart of every decision we make. We pass on the principles behind our design approach by carefully nurturing our staff – a shared aspiration for quality design is the key to our growth and success.

Andrew Tate

Director & EOT Trustee

Andrew qualified as an architect in 1981 beginning his career at Prudential Assurance working on a number of significant buildings within their pension fund portfolio, including the redevelopment of Prudential’s own headquarters in Holborn.

He set up TateHindle in 1992 together with James Hindle, concentrating initially on commercial and residential schemes within central London.

The passion Andrew has for high-quality design in both new build and refurbished schemes impresses clients nationwide. He continues to forge new relationships whilst embracing the challenges of a dynamic and ever changing architectural landscape.

Andrew is a keen cyclist and has organised the annual Genoa to Cannes Cycle to MIPIM for the last nine years.

Andrew has converted a water tower near Amersham into his family home, which has featured on Channel 4′s ‘Grand Designs’.

Mike Jamieson

Director & EOT Trustee

As Design Director, Mike leads the Design Group and the internal design review process within the office. Passionate about good design and its ability to enrich and transform lives, Mike’s hands-on approach to projects ensures an inclusive dialogue between client and design team. Creating a strong working relationship from the outset, Mike organises projects in a systematic and efficient manner to ensure that designs meet and exceed our client’s objectives.

Mike has particular expertise in the design and delivery of commercial offices, residential and mixed use developments. Recent projects include the award-winning Great Kneighton housing development, Beaulieu Park, New Fetter Place and Millbrook Park.

As part of TateHindle's research initiatives Mike has lead study visits to inform the range of exemplar projects including Hammarby, Stockholm and Rotterdam.

Mike participates in the RIBA Student Mentoring Scheme at the London South Bank University. He regularly contributes to annual events including London Festival of Architecture, is an assessor for the Civic Trust Awards and corresponding member of the RIBA Housing Group.

Sarah Brown

Director

Sarah joined TateHindle in 1997 and has worked across all areas of the practice. She has particular expertise in commercial refurbishment and corporate fit-out projects and is passionate about achieving high-quality design solutions.

Sarah has designed refurbishment schemes for a number of heritage buildings in London. She enjoys sensitively restoring neglected buildings to their former grandeur; celebrating existing historical features whilst simultaneously introducing stylish modern additions to deliver an eclectic blend of old and new.

Sarah's enthusiasm inspires her team and her clients, helping them to achieve their objectives.

Harish Ratna

Director

Harish joined TateHindle in 2001 and became a Director in 2015. He works across all areas of the practice and many of his projects are with repeat clients who appreciate his 'hands on' approach.

He recently completed the Gagosian Gallery in Mayfair for Grosvenor Britain & Ireland. The scheme transformed what was a tired 1960s office block into a contemporary building suitable for a world-renowned art gallery. Other projects include high-end residential schemes in London for The Crown Estate, Alchemi Group and Angelo, Gordon & Co.

A keen cyclist, Harish accompanies Andrew Tate on the annual Genoa to Cannes Cycle to MIPIM.
