Optimists working together to make the world better

Tate & Co. is one of the UK’s leading sustainable architects for working within natural environments. We create inspirational and sustainable spaces for people and communities that connect with, and respond to the natural environment.

We specialise in producing bespoke, economical solutions for sensitive locations, unique landscapes, important historic settings or tight urban pocket spaces.

We’re a personable, enthusiastic, competition winning team who design bespoke solutions for every project. What we do is create individual, beautifully considered designs that are built to last.

Our approach


We are open about design and strive to ‘de-mystify’ its process by engaging the client and design team with clear communication to ensure consensus.


We enjoy technical challenges and are capable of integrating sustainable techniques through the design and construction process.


We adopt a pragmatic approach, ensuring that we can successfully deliver authentic designs at all stages of a project.


We are proud of our long-term relationships with our clients and colleagues. We enjoy working with people, and people like working with us!


We provide intelligently designed, high performance sustainable buildings and spaces, with simple to use systems and future flexibility to meet the demands of our clients.”

Rory Harmer, Partner

The Tate + Co. philosophy has been developed through our deep experience of the ever growing environmental challenges facing our built and natural environment.

Our passion and love of the natural world, combined with our ability to deliver carefully considered designs, means we construct buildings and spaces that provide the very best environments for health and well-being.
