Patel Taylor was founded by Pankaj Patel and Andrew Taylor in 1989. Based in Clerkenwell, London, the office is structured to tackle a host of different projects while maintaining consistent quality and the personal involvement of the founders throughout.

Pankaj and Andrew are active on the UK architectural scene, lecturing across the country, examining at architecture schools and serving on juries for both the Civic Trust and RIBA Awards. Both directors are members of CABE’s national design review committee and additional London design review panels.

The practice has recently completed a variety of major UK projects in key regeneration areas such as the critically acclaimed Courtyard Housing in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, and the multi award-winning Library and Student Centre for the University of Essex. Other recent projects include the London Olympic Athletes' Village in Stratford and the award-winning Eastside City Park in Birmingham.
