We create innovative, high quality and socially useful architecture

dRMM is a London-based, international studio of architects and designers founded in 1995 and led by Alex de Rijke, Philip Marsh, Sadie Morgan and Jonas Lencer. We are renowned for creating architecture that is innovative, high quality and socially useful. For this, we have won awards including Britain’s top architecture award the RIBA Stirling Prize 2017Building Design (BD) Architect Of The Year 2014 and Building Design (BD) Housing Architect of the Year 2015.

We are proud of our reputation, and owe it to an incredibly talented and resourceful team who work in the belief that outstanding architecture comes about through client collaboration, creative design, environmental awareness and building innovation.

Clients trust us because we go out of our way to understand and realise their needs through detailed research and careful practice. The construction industry respects us because we use standardized, cost-effective materials and building methods to make innovative architecture. And the press and public have warmed to us for a lightness of touch that has been described as joyful, flamboyant and unique.

Our work is driven by the following ethos:

We are committed to outstanding architecture that transforms and inspires.
We see client constraints, culture & society as a site of creative design.
We collaborate to exceed client expectations.
We think about environment and people when making places.
We are concerned with how we build as well as what we build.
