Andrew co-founded Proctor and Matthews Architects in 1988. Much of the studio’s work has explored the concepts of ‘identity’, ‘context’ and ‘belonging’ - undertaking focused research into twenty-first century living patterns, emerging lifestyles and the integration of sustainable technologies.

Andrew studied at the Universities of Cambridge and Sheffield. He has lectured and taught extensively in schools of architecture in both the UK and abroad and is currently a Visiting Professor at the University of Sheffield School of Architecture.

Over the last fifteen years Andrew has developed design expertise in the utilisation of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) and has been a frequent contributor to initiatives at both the Building Research Establishment (BRE) and the Building Centre Trust.

Andrew is a member of the Haringey and Newham Design Review Panels. He is also an Academician at the Academy of Urbanism and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
