About

We are architects and urbanists, design custodians of places where people can live, work and enjoy every shade of life in between. Our vision is to evolve every space, building or community we engage with for the better — for its people and for the planet.

We believe that designing with optimism and innovation can bring about tangible change. By bringing together the best of the past with the hope of the new we can make architecture that works for the present, and remains sustainable well into the future.

Our approach is built on trust, and the personal relationships we nurture with our collaborators. With them, we develop well thought through, robust ideas that we can all believe in, and sit at our clients’ side to bring them to fruition.

We use design to solve non-design problems: we are as much economists, management consultants and negotiators as we are architects. Guided by a deep pool of collective knowledge and a portfolio of many interrelated building types, we use our personal ingenuity to add technical, material, commercial and aesthetic value.

As TateHindle, we highly value our creative commons — the expertise, spirit and skills we have now shared as a practice for a generation. We continue to build on these good foundations with imagination because the more we evolve together, the better we become.

Employee Owned Trust

TateHindle was founded in 1992, and in 2016 we became an employee-owned trust (EOT) with the belief that the more we evolve together, the better we become. The intention is that each future generation of leaders at TateHindle will work within the existing environmental, financial and social conditions to leave the practice better, balancing commercial viability with the wellbeing of the employees, and adopting values of teamwork, commitment, imagination, fairness and respect.

Becoming an EOT has enabled us to build on the existing culture of the practice, reinforcing an optimistic, innovative and collective approach, while ensuring the future sustainability of the business. Every member of the team plays a part in TateHindle’s success, contributing their individual skills and opinions for the benefit of the whole. As one team member put it, “Being an EOT means being part of a collective vision and working towards a common goal”.

Good communication within the practice means being an EOT has made us a stronger business with clearly defined goals for the future. Each team member’s voice is respected, and this in turn creates a sense of belonging and commitment.
