Terence Smith and Joe Hazan first met while training at The Architectural Association in London between 1968 and 1975. After successfully completing their education at The A.A. , they both went on to work for large architectural and Town Planning offices. They met again in the early eighties and began to work together, on a part time basis, on a variety of building design projects. By the mid eighties, commissions were so numerous that they could no longer be undertaken whilst in full time employment . The decision was therefore made, in 1986, to set up their own practice and partnership. The practice name became Hazan, Smith and Partners and an architectural office opened in the West End of London. The office location has not changed since then but the practice name became HSP Architects LLP in April 2015.
HSP do not have an architectural house style but do have a simple practice philosophy. This is to understand the needs of their clients and offer them a range of design solutions which will meet his brief and budget. These plans are then turned into a built reality. The partnership has now been established for over 30 years. Over that time, it has built up a substantial building portfolio and extensive knowledge of the construction industry. HSP undertake a wide variety of projects. These range from sensitive work to listed buildings up to the design and creation of major new developments.
This web site is just a selection of our completed projects. The practice has largely been built up on the strength of successful projects and satisfied clients. We look forward to you joining their ranks.
