Gresford Architects have worked with buildings of all types and ages, and have particular experience working with listed buildings and in conservation. We find that working with existing buildings offers as many challenges as a new site and believe in the important role of the built environment in our cultural heritage, but also that buildings are living organisms that must be allowed to grow and change, and that how buildings age and develop over time is in itself an important document of our society.
The practice was founded by Tom Gresford in 2006 and work in an open studio in Dalston, east London. We work closely with our clients to realise their briefs in a creative and unique manner and believe that the most successful projects are, without fail, where the design team, client and contractor work together in a positive and collaborative manner to create a finished space or building.
Tom Gresford studied at the Mackintosh School of Architecture in Glasgow and at North London University. On qualifying in 2002 he worked for ECD Architects, where he worked on large scale housing and masterplanning projects, and then at Springett Mackay (now Matthew Springett Architects) where he worked on high end residential projects and arts projects before setting up Gresford Architects in 2006. Tom is a member of the ARB, RIBA, SPAB and is a Green Register accredited architect.
Phoebe Gresford studied at the Mackintosh School of Architecture in Glasgow and the Architectural Association, London and qualified as an Architect in 2002.

Gresford Architects seek to create buildings that are thoughtful, practical, sustainable and beautiful. We are interested in how spaces (and the buildings that create them) make us feel; how every decision that goes into creating a space – the materiality (surfaces, joints, planes, textures), the positioning of the windows and doors, of lighting and heating – must be carefully considered to allow the perfect marriage of the poetic and the practical.
