Studio Tamacoco Architects

Studio Tamacoco Architects


Studio Tamacoco is an architectural practice based in the City of York. 


We enjoy the challenge of finding imaginative design solutions for all our projects from small scale domestic extensions through to larger commercial schemes within the public domain.


We have a special interest in the repair, adaptation and reuse of historic buildings and have delivered a number of schemes requiring Listed Building Consent within sensitive conservation areas.


As a practice our design approach always starts with an in depth analysis of the brief to fully understand and develop the client's requirements with quality and affordability as fundamental priorities.  


We strive to offer a tailored design solution which provides a sustainable response to the character of the site using the best of both traditional and modern building materials and techniques.


The practice was founded in 2013 by Jamie Holden, an RIBA registered Architect.  He has worked in York since 2001 and is a member of EASA (The Ecclesiastical Architects & Surveyors Association), The Green Register which promotes sustainable construction and the C20th society.


He regularly takes part in research and training events organised by EASA, the University of York, the RIBA and York Architectural Association.  Jamie is an Approved Inspector for churches within the Diocese of York, Leeds and Sheffield.

Good design and successful buildings are always the result of a team effort with contributions from many different sources, therefore, the practice encourages close collaboration with other design professionals, contractors and clients.
