Creating Places People Want to Stay

Overview
Architecture
Interior Design
Working Globally

DMA started out in 1992 with just three people in a small Marylebone office. We’ve come a long way since then and now as a team of 50, based in Camden Town,  are widely recognised as one of London’s leading hotel & leisure design studios. We work internationally across the entire hospitality spectrum from limited service through to the luxury end for a wide range of leading international hoteliers, independent operators and developers. We place our design-led ethos of ‘creating places people want to stay’ at the heart of every project we do whether it be a hotel, resort, residential development or sports stadium.

DMA is a Chartered RIBA practice.

 

  • DMA Core Values

    Everywhere is an idea

    Every project is different and presents unique challenges, which is why we have been careful not to develop a rigid house style. Instead we work hard to get under the skin of every project and sum it up as a single unifying idea.

  • DMA Core Values

    We're in touch with commercial reality

    We never stop thinking about the needs of the end user and strive to ensure every bit of space adds to the commercial value of the project.

  • DMA Core Values

    Nothing is ever 'not our problem'

    Our process covers every stage of a project from initial scoping to marketing and promotion. The breadth of our capabilities is reflected in the multifaceted nature of our board.

  • DMA Core Values

    Our work is precious, our attitude isn't

    People assume behind every big idea is a big head, but it doesn’t have to be this way. We believe great architecture is the product of grand ideas not grandiose egos.
