Director & Founding Partner
Birmingham School of Architecture
South Bank School of Architecture
Michael founded Nagan Johnson with Deborah Nagan in 1999 with the vision of giving a one-stop design service for the hospitality industry including architecture, interiors and landscape. The practice has broadened out over the years and is now more general design-based, specializing in creating something exquisite from unpromising sites.
Prior to this, Michael ran his own practice focusing almost exclusively on the design of restaurants and bars. Michael has also owned his own restaurant, bar and gallery, The Tearooms des Artists and had set up a nightclub/ music venue in Brixton. He now spends his summer weekends playing cricket having been on his team’s annual tour to Cornwall for the past 30 years.
