Proctor and Matthews is an architecture, urban design and masterplanning practice based in its own studios in Bermondsey, London. Stephen Proctor and Andrew Matthews established their studio in 1988, and have since worked on projects in the UK and abroad; including Ireland, Norway, Italy, Georgia, St Kitts and India. Proctor and Matthews is now recognised as one of the country’s leading design practices with a reputation for award winning design excellence.
Central to this success is a creative core of directors, and associate directors with wide ranging experience in the residential, commercial, education, leisure, sports and arts sectors. Project teams currently include talented individuals from the UK, Spain, Italy, Germany, Romania and Lithuania.
An extensive portfolio of completed work demonstrates a focused commitment to imaginative and appropriate designs tailored to the specifics of each commission. This combines a regard for historical contexts and cultural identities with the need to create a socially and environmentally responsive architecture.

Recent awards include an RIBA National 2014 Award for Hargood Close, Colchester, Winner of the Richard Fielden Award, for affordable housing, and a Housing Design Award in 2013 for the same project.
