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 Simon Ricketts, Mike Jamieson, Harish Ratna and Sarah Brown, and Associate Directors Louie Wilkes and Jane Sharman. We now have over 70 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 build-ability 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

In 2016 we made the exciting decision to become an Employee Owned Trust. 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. By carefully nurturing staff we are able to pass on the principles behind our design approach - a shared passion for quality design is the key to our growth and success.

Andrew Tate

Director

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 seven years.

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

James Hindle

Director

James Hindle trained at the Glasgow School of Art and won the Haldane Scholarship and the prestigious Royal Scottish Academy prize for architecture. After qualifying he worked at DY Davies for six years and, having specialised in the design and construction of high quality commercial buildings, became the director in charge of the company’s city division.

James then joined London and Paris Properties in 1988 as director and for four years supervised the design and construction of its commercial development programme including a number of prestigious new build and refurbishment projects. He has completed numerous commercial office developments as a client.

In 1992 James formed TateHindle with Andrew Tate. He continues to develop the business and nurture relationships, providing commercially driven solutions for Clients.

Outside the office, Jim is a sports car enthusiast and keen skier. He and his wife run The Rumba Foundation which is a charity funding research into ground-breaking cancer treatments for animals and people.

Simon Ricketts

Director

Simon shares his interests across all sectors within the practice but has a particular involvement in refurbishment and end user projects. Joining TateHindle after a formative five years with DEGW, he brought a rigour to briefing and concept design applying the user perspective to developer lead projects.

Recent significant projects have included the planning application for the redevelopment of the grade I listed 55 Broadway in Westminster and the refurbishment of offices at Green Park, Reading.

Simon has been heavily involved in establishing the mentoring process within the studio to develop colleagues.

With a great interest in furniture, product and graphic design Simon spends time outside the office restoring his Hugh Casson designed ‘concrete house’.

Mike Jamieson

Director

Mike is Design Director at the practice, leading the Design Group and office internal design review process. Passionate about good design and its ability to enrich and transform lives, Mike’s hands on approach to projects ensures an inclusive dialogue between clients and design teams. Creating a strong working relationship from the outset, he 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, New Fetter Place and Millbrook Park.

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.

Louie Wilkes

Associate director

Louie joined TateHindle in 2012. She gained her undergraduate degree in interior design and architecture at Kingston University and her Diploma in architecture at the University of Westminster.

Louie has a wealth of experience across several sectors, including residential-led masterplanning, mixed use developments, community facilities, offices and arts buildings. Louie works closely with clients and building users to deliver creative, high-quality design solutions that exceed expectations. Her passion for design combined with her commercial awareness continues to impress her clients.

Louie has led design teams at TateHindle to deliver projects from feasibility through to construction. She has been an integral member of the design development team.

Jane Sharman

Associate director

Jane joined TateHindle in 2010 as Practice Manager and is responsible for the financial efficiency and general business practice of the firm. Jane studied engineering at university and applies her numerical, analytical and strategic skills within the business environment to oversee the operation of the business and ensure it runs smoothly.

Working closely with the project teams and heading up the support team, Jane is responsible for the financial and contractual performance of the jobs as well as practice resourcing, fee proposals, QA and contracts. She is a strong believer of shared knowledge and strives to promote the importance of financial and commercial acumen amongst the architectural teams.
