Jimi Deji-Tijani – Architect

Bluebead Architects (Uxbridge, London) was founded by Jimi Deji-Tijani (RIBA, ARB).

Jimi undertook his architectural training at University of Westminster (BA 2011, MArch 2016, PgDip 2020). Prior to founding the studio, he worked for private practices across London (including Enclosure Architects and Sacks Maguire Architects), amassing 10+ years’ experience across several high-profile projects. This includes new build projects, refurbishments of listed buildings, educational, and private residential clients.

The challenge of respecting each building as an individual but combining as a part of an interwoven urban fabric is a keen fascination to Jimi, and he enjoys the day-to-day opportunity to make spaces better for each and every person that interacts with them.
