BuckleyGrayYeoman climbs to 28 in the AJ100

20 June 2019

At an awards ceremony held within the Tower of London, the UK’s top 100 architectural practices were unveiled by the Architects’ Journal.


BuckleyGrayYeoman continued to climb further up the rankings and was placed at 28, up from 40 in 2018. This recognises the 65 architects we employ and an increase in total headcount by 16% in the financial year 2018-2019, with staff in our main Shoreditch office joined by a new Bristol studio. We also expanded our overseas work in the same period and work in Europe now accounts for around 15% of our business.


The announcement comes in the same month we moved towards an Employee Owned Trust, a move supported by the appointment of four new Directors: Amr Assaad, Oliver Bayliss, Laura O’Hagan, and Andrew Henriques. Directors Matt Yeoman and Paul White will transition into a joint-CEO role. The move towards a shared ownership structure comes as we look to sustain the future of the 100-strong firm with an expanded leadership team that moves away from the traditional Director-ownership model.


Earlier in 2019, six members of staff were promoted to Associate and two to Senior Architect. The appointments were all internal promotions, reflecting our commitment to develop its team by nurturing talent and rewarding achievement.
