About dn-a

We aim to create exciting buildings and spaces that reflect our clients’ needs and personality, while respecting site and context

After many years in large practices, we founded dn-a to pursue our own brand of architecture, one which combines creativity with pragmatism, client service with minute attention to detail.

We have built a team that shares these values and believes that the process of creating a building as part of a team should be both rewarding and fun. We enjoy working together as a studio to discuss inspirations, generate ideas, then develop and test these against the brief from our clients and the needs of the users of the finished building.

The studio is of a size that means the Directors continue to be ‘hands on’ – from the earliest stages of a project, through construction and completion and beyond. The relationships that we have built with our clients, fellow consultants, contractors and within our team are the foundation of our approach and our success.




We always design buildings from the perspective of the end user, to create spaces that help foster collaboration, innovation and a sense of community.

Interior Design

We combine interior architecture, space planning and functionality to create beautiful and functional spaces, each individually tailored to our clients’ needs and aspirations.


Over the past decade we have been involved in a range of high profile masterplans. We always focus on best practice, sustainability, context, community and client understanding.
