Following fast in the footsteps of our flourishing Guangzhou (China) office opened in 2015, Holmes Miller was delighted to formally open our new office in Clerkenwell London on Wednesday 23rd of May 2018.

Operating out of London since late 2017, following a merger with an established practice, Holmes Miller has utilised the intervening 6 months to consolidate the merger, standardise our systems and cultivate a pipeline of projects in London and the South West with new and existing clients.

Sharing in the cultural and entertaining events happening during the ‘Clerkenwell Design Week’, the Practice utilised our new base in the heart of Clerkenwell to host a summer drinks reception with clients and consultants to formally open our new office. 

Whilst this is Holmes Miller's first formal London presence, we are no stranger to the city.  Holmes Miller delivered the OCS Stand at The Kia Oval, we were Technical Advisor (TA) on the iconic new Wembley Stadium and we enjoyed unlimited access to the London 2012 Olympics Velodrome and Copper Box, unfortunately this was during their construction as Lead TA and not as a flag waving supporter.

Holmes Miller Managing Director, Callum Houston said

“The opening of a London office is the realisation of a planned strategy linked to our long held vision and ambitions for the Practice.

I am delighted to have found a partner, through merger, who wished to share in the values and future of the Holmes Miller brand as we collectively strive to deliver excellence in design and service to our clients.

I am also delighted that our new London office will be led by Holmes Miller Director, Tim Gray who has jumped at the opportunity to relocate back to his old stomping grounds after enjoying the vagaries of the Scottish weather over the past 14 years.”
