We are an RIBA Chartered Practice founded in 2008 with extensive experience working alongside private individuals, schools, businesses and other organizations to deliver carefully considered and crafted buildings. We have a substantial body of built work much of which has been published.

Our design process is focussed on creating buildings which are rich in texture, but with a calm atmosphere and a sense of authenticity. These qualities emerge from a real interest and concern with structure, materials and construction.

When designing, we carefully consider the wider impact of a project, be that cultural, environmental or visual. Good buildings have the potential to have positive impacts that reach far beyond the people who commission and use them.

We offer a range of services from design consultancy to detailed design and full project management and we are always open to discussing a potential project.



Sam Tisdall was educated at the university of Cambridge and the university of East London where he represented the school in Building Design’s annual review. He qualified as an Architect in 2004 and has been working on his own projects since then. He set up Sam Tisdall Architects LLP in 2008.

He has worked for various practices including Matthew Lloyd Architects, Cottrell and Vermeulan and Richard Partington, where he cut his teeth on a wide range of projects, including a new primary school, social and market housing schemes and community projects.

He has been an invited critic at Cambridge, Brighton, London Metropolitan and East London universities. He lives with his wife and two daughters in West London.
