Architect’s Statement
TDO architecture was founded in 2010 with a one-off commission for Wallpaper* Magazine. The studio has since grown to design and deliver exceptional buildings and collaborations at a variety of scales with a team of carefully selected and talented designers. The three founding partners work together on the concept design phase of each project, reflecting a unique, collaborative working relationship extending back to their shared training and particular vision for the highest-quality 21st-century architecture. Paired with a focus on client relationships, the results are buildings that exceed expectations as well as numerous collaborations with leading artists and designers in parallel fields.

Architect’s Statement
Hogarth Architects creates inspired contemporary homes ranging from multi-million pound city homes to stylish country retreats that elegantly fulfil the client’s requirements and reflect their lifestyle. The essence of every Hogarth design is to view the home as a sanctuary with the whole design concept shaped around the client’s specific needs. The practice undertakes commissions for new-build homes, as well as apartments, refurbishment/remodelling, extensions and interiors. Each project is approached as a unique piece of design blending together traditional materials and state-of-the-art technologies to create a comfortable, stylish home that adeptly meets the needs of 21st century living. To ensure the highest quality, we are actively involved with each project from the earliest stages through to completion.

Architect’s Statement
Bryan Thomas trained at the Architectural Association 1945-1950, and worked with David Stern and later with Wells Coates and his partner Michael Lyell in London. In 1957 he set up his own practice in Colchester, Essex, producing a number of houses locally, many of which he has since revisited to extend and upgrade for the 21st century. Perhaps Thomas’ most iconic house is the House on the Heath, built in 1974, and in 1960 he designed and built the Chatto House for British gardener Beth Chatto. Thomas has built houses both for himself and his family. His most recent project in Alresford, Essex, completed in 2006, and in 2013 he received a commendation in the Sunday Times’ British Homes Award.
