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.
