Naganjohnson are an award winning architects’ practice based near London Waterloo. 

Our projects aim to create contemporary, fluid spaces, which object to conventional boundaries between the interior and exterior.  This allows our projects to span disciplines giving us the freedom to design restaurants, hotels, residences, interiors, landscapes and conceptual gardens, and the ability to be able to offer our clients a broad design expertise.


Our work is site specific and we keep an open approach to each scheme.  We work closely with our clients, to enable us to provide designs which suit individual needs.

We aim to provide a high quality and elegant design solution, in which fine detail is key.

Our residential work has varied from housing associations schemes, to new build homes, and small extensions, to a more recent succession of high-end refurbishments.  We have designed eateries and bars, and worked on artists studios. In landscape we have designed gardens for International garden festivals, created conceptual spaces in London, and remodelled clients’ back-yards into beautiful and functional gardens.


naganjohnson was established in 1999, created by the fusion of MJA, Michael Johnson architects, with the office of interior and furniture designer Deborah Nagan. The objective was integrating the skills of architects, interior and furniture designers to offer a comprehensive service in the design of contemporary restaurants hotels and residencies.  Since that time Deborah has studied Landscape Architecture at the University of Greenwich and has worked for EDAW and Martha Schwartz Partners as a project manager, on landscape and master planning projects around the world including a major new park in Damascus, and a mixed use development in Seoul.  Michael has over 30 years experience as an architect, 29 years of which he has been a partner or proprietor.

As well as the wealth of experience of the Partners the vibrancy of the practice is maintained by a young, talented and enthusiastic workforce.
