What we do

Johnson Naylor is an interior architecture and design practice based in Clerkenwell, London. Founded in 1990 by Brian Johnson and Fiona Naylor, we have developed a reputation for delivering inventive, contextual and elegant design. Working from first principles, our approach is collaborative, rational and open.

We employ over 20 professional design staff from a range of disciplines – Architects, Interior Designers, Furniture Designers and Graphic Designers. We see design as a dialogue and our large open plan studio encourages communication and the exchange of ideas.

We are specialists at deciphering complicated projects, space plans and schemes that need to be re-interpreted or remodelled. We apply intelligence and sensitivity to create enduring interiors that respond to their unique context and surroundings. Our designs are layered and maintain an inherent level of quality in every detail.

Johnson Naylor nurtures talent, champions appropriate design and creates commercially successful spaces.

Make & Place provides residents and investor purchasers the ability to achieve a curated, considered, and complementary interior that responds to the interior architecture.




As a practice, Johnson Naylor are dedicated to creating enduring, intelligent and sustainable interior spaces. We recognised the challenge and balance that is required to design with the planet in mind and in partnership with our clients we seek to move the dial in favour of the environment. Our approach considers not only the material life cycle and healthy materials that are responsibly sourced but also creating quality, long-lasting, efficient and flexible designs. Playing our part in this future leads us to seek out alternative ways to work with our developer partners.


Our Initiatives 

We are currently looking to better our sustainability commitments by pursuing a  BCorp Certification.

  • We have established an in-house sustainability steering group of designers in architecture, interiors, ff&e and office management to research, enquire, implement and capture information that can better our understanding and practice. 
  • We engage with our supplier, contacts and client to understand and develop sustainable practices through design, whilst improving our knowledge of the subject
  • We have invested in training and development, including specialised courses and CPDs, to educate our staff. 


Along with all our project partners we look forward to looking back on the impact we can all  make to this ongoing challenge.
