Kyle Buchanan




Kyle founded Archio in 2011, having previously worked for a number of award winning practices, including Sergison Bates, Glenn Howells and Moxon Architects.

Archio creates housing and public projects that benefit the local community, both in city boroughs and rural settlements. Using innovative technologies and public engagement, the studio designs good-looking buildings that work hard for their occupants. Current clients include London Community Land Trust and Be First (Barking and Dagenham).

Kyle currently sits on the Tower Hamlets Self Build Association Steering Group, established to liaise with THBC over the release of public land for self-build housing, and the development board of Abney Park in North London, which is overseeing the delivery of a new £5m community facility, funded by a Heritage Lottery grant.

Kyle is an RIBA Conservation Registrant and is a member of the Kingston Design Review panel run by Design South East. His enthusiasm for craft and making drives the attention to detail in Archio’s built work.

Kyle has been named RIBA South West Project Architect of the Year 2018.
