Oliver Hill (1887–1968) was an English architect, landscape architect, and garden designer. He was apprenticed to a builder and then to an architect. His early garden designs were in the Arts and Crafts style but he turned towards modernism in the 1930s, favouring curved lines. He designed the British pavilion at the Paris Exposition of 1937.

Hill was a Fellow of the Institute of Landscape Architects and enjoyed a reputation as a country house designer.
