Hill Patru Architects is a London based architecture and interdisciplinary design practice.


We work with private homeowners, landlords, developers and local authorities on individual homes, new-build housing, retail and hospitality and public realm projects.

We help our clients add value to their sites, produce design that passes the tests of use and time and create architecture that responds to the people who live and work in it.
