DSDHA’s work blurs the boundaries between architecture, landscape and urbanism, and the practice is best known for its innovative approach to design across the scales, from bespoke commissions to urban plans. Their projects have been recognised with twelve RIBA Awards in the last decade, and they have twice been nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Prize for Contemporary Architecture.
Recent projects range from a gateway building for London’s Olympic Village, a flagship store in the West End and new studios for the ceramic artist Edmund de Waal and jewellery designer Alex Monroe. In addition, DSDHA has been involved in significant urban design proposals including improvements to the public realm between The Albert Memorial and The Royal Albert Hall, Tottenham Court Road and regeneration projects for Waterloo and Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens.
Deborah and David also lead the studio’s research, regularly writing and broadcasting on architecture, and have taught widely including at EPFL (Lausanne), University of Cambridge, AA, RCA and currently respectively at London School of Architecture and the Cass School of Architecture, London.
