Founded in 2000, Jonathan Tuckey Design focuses exclusively on “architecture and alteration to existing buildings.” Tuckey, an architect who formerly worked with David Chipperfield, focuses on the reinterpretation of existing structures, creating new uses for forgotten buildings while retaining the essential character and patina of the original structure.
