Basic Biographical Details

Name: Knox & Hutton
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: c. 1882
Ended: 1887
Bio Notes: Knox & Hutton practised from 63 York Place, Edinburgh in 1883-87. Their Thomson-influenced detail suggests a Glasgow connection: Knox may have been the J A Knox who was in partnership with an unidentified Halley in Glasgow in 1874-75. More likely he is Wilm (William?) Knox who was born in Glasgow but trained with Moffatt & Aitken in Edinburgh. At the end of his articles he seems to have formed a partnership with John Hutton and practised in Edinburgh from 1882 until 1886 when Knox went on a world tour. This he broke short in 1886 to work in Chicago in the office of Burnham & Root. Another possibility is that the Knox was John Smith Knox, who was listed in the 'Architect's, Engineer's and Building Trades' Directory' (1868) as practising at 7 Gardner's Crescent, Edinburgh.
