Lynch Architects

Location London



Lynch Architects was founded in 1997 by director Patrick Lynch. Today, the practice undertakes projects on any scale from private houses, art galleries and public spaces to master plans and major civic, commercial and residential buildings, creating modern architecture that is carefully and wittily integrated into its surroundings. We believe in the craft of architecture, and our studio is a place where we make things - models at various scales, and images that reflect the tectonic and figurative qualities of architectural projects. Our work has been published and exhibited internationally and as well as our imaginative and practical design work we contribute to architectural culture both as teachers and writers, as well as critics and as heritage specialists. In sum, we are General Practicioners, specialising in beauty and use.

The practice is responsible for designing and delivering some of the largest development schemes across London, as well as very small, almost invisible design solutions that compliment and help their neighbours. Recent projects include The Zig Zag Building ? an £80M office building ? and Kings Gate ? a £100M residential scheme, both situated in Victoria in London's Westminster. We are currently working for a diverse range of clients on a wide range of projects, including social and market housing, government and cultural projects, houses and monuments. We are committed to the idea that good design is like good poetry - both entail the search for a poetic economy of means.

Greenwood Road

This new house sits at the end of a terrace of early Victorian Houses in Hackney. It was commissioned by a carpenter and a music journalist and is constructed from a "Green Oak" frame, clad externally with thin vertical oak boards.

Hoxton Street

We bought the upper floors of this curious little brick tower building on Hoxton Street as a place to live and work. It is part of an early 1970s social housing project by Leonard Manasseh architects designed for the Greater London Council, and acts typologically as the public face of the housing estate. We presumed that in the past the shop at ground floor was a post office and that the postmistress would have lived upstairs. In the 1980s Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government offered council tenants the “right to buy”...

Kings Gate SW1

Kings Gate forms a pair of buildings on Victoria Street in Westminster, with its neighbour The Zig Zag Building. The scheme replaces an existing slab-like office building on Victoria Street in central London with two new buildings that incorporate a mix of retail, office space and housing. We won this project in an invited competition in Spring 2010, and gained planning consent in November 2011. The main contractor was Lend Lease and Practical Completion was achieved in Autumn 2015.

Liverpool University Masterplan

This work forms part of our entry in a design competition in the autumn of 2017 to create a master plan for Liverpool University, seeking to integrate the campus better into the city. The brief is quite specific, and the university estates department have a long-term plan to create a car-free campus, with the locations of two large car parks agreed in principle. Our proposals are informed by the close integration of the city and university of Bologna, and by the repetitive urban artifact of colonnades that one finds there....

Madder Gallery

This art gallery on Whitecross Street London EC1 is a conversion of two adjacent Georgian houses, and comprises a double-height basement gallery and rear courtyard with 2 flats above.

Marsh View Norfolk

Marsh View is a holiday house located in an "area of outstanding natural beauty" on the North Norfolk coast, amongst fresh and saltwater marshlands. It sits at the end of a lane beside four 1950s bungalows in a small hamlet close to Burnham Market. The project occurred in two phases, 2001-3 when the main house was built for a textile artist; and then 2007-8, when the studio and car port were added and alterations made to the ground floor of the house.

Lynch Architects

Murray Grove

Lynch Architects are the latest practice to be commissioned by Hackney Council as part of their Housing Supply Programme, overcoming competition with a design for around 60 new homes at Murray Grove in Hoxton. The site is an area at the base of an 18 storey 1960s tower, Thaxted Court, on the corner of Murray Grove and East Road in Hoxton, currently occupied by a 2 story car park structure. The problem of the integration of 1960s towers into a hospitable streetscape seems to be a recurring theme in our...

The Zig Zag Building SW1

The Zig Zag Building replaces a 1950s office block with exemplary new office space. Colonnades at various scales indicate and define the entrances to the various different types of accommodation housed within the broader scope of our project e.g. offices, housing, restaurants, shops, bars, etc. Situated between a cathedral and a town hall on Victoria Street, the design seeks to mediate between these two in terms of size and scale and to establish a credible and pleasurable urban spatial order connecting together the grain of this part of Westminster. The...
