Amin Taha Architects was formed in 2001 after its founders won competitions for urban regeneration in Manchester and a small theatre and arts centre in east London. Until recently it had just two principals, Anglo-Iraqi-Sudanese Amin Taha and Sarah Griffiths, but it has now appointed Richard Cheesman to the same position. Both Taha and Cheesman worked for Wilkinson Eyre, and Taha also spent time in the offices of Richard Murphy, Rick Mather, Lifschutz Davidson and Zaha Hadid, while Griffiths worked at Lifschutz Davidson and was an associate at McDowell + Benedetti.

Since it was established, the practice has completed Gazzano House on Farringdon Road, London - the eye-catching Cor-Ten residential building near the Guardian/Observer headquarters, which was shortlisted for two awards - and has won a competition for a new family house on the Thames in Henley.
