Michael Jones Architects is an award-winning architectural practice situated in Richmond, South West London.

Founded in 1990 by Michael Jones, the practice has many successful years producing bespoke, high-quality, enduring architecture; with a portfolio that spans a wide range of building types, from commercial developments to private residences.

Our breadth of experience covers new-build developments as well as restorative work on listed buildings, and schemes within conservation areas. We’re motivated by architecture’s ability to enrich, whether a private home, a workplace, or a community, and we endeavour to efficiently deliver projects that are environmentally sensitive, exceptionally detailed and beautifully constructed.

From refurbishments and extensions, to complete new build developments, our work stretches across a range of sectors including:

  • Private Homes

  • Housing Developments

  • Commercial Buildings

  • Community and Culture

With an expertise in the successful delivery of schemes, we offer a variety of services from feasibility to completion, including:

  • Brief Development

  • Concept Design

  • Planning Applications

  • Design Development

  • Construction Packages

  • Contract Administration



Our approach is client centred. All projects start with a relaxed, no-strings-attached conversation (usually over a cup of tea), where we discuss your ideas and the process that can bring them to life.  

With an inherent understanding that no two clients are the same and that every project is unique, our studio adopts a bespoke design methodology for each specific scheme; ensuring that the end product meets the client's individual needs, whilst maintaining an enthusiastic and professional work ethic throughout.

Our structured process conforms to the architectural work stages outlined in the official RIBA Plan of Work:

  • Stage 0 - Strategic Definition

  • Stage 1 - Preparation & Brief

  • Stage 2 - Concept Design

  • Stage 3 - Developed Design

  • Stage 4 - Technical Design
