Wilkinson Eyre Architects is one of the UK's leading architectural practices, based in London, England. After gaining experience in a number of top UK practices, Chris Wilkinson set up Chris Wilkinson Architects in 1983, acting as sole principal. He formed a partnership with Jim Eyre in 1987, with the practice registered as Wilkinson Eyre Architects in 1999. Following an internal restructuring, the company was re-registered under the same name in April 2006.
