The Practice

Exceptional architecture is the product of great design and enlightened patronage. For this reason David Morley Architects seek out clients who will enable us to do our best work. After 25 years of practice, our projects have been consistently both evolutionary and revolutionary, building on tradition as well as creating prototypes for the future. A David Morley Architects project is a ‘natural consequence’ using both meanings: in harmony with nature and relaxed and unaffected. Our work is integrated, wherever possible using one building component to solve more than one problem and it’s based on a process of dialogue and communication to ensure every scheme is well focussed on delivering what each individual client needs. The success of this approach has been reflected in:

  • 100% record in securing planning approval and listed building consent;
  • Longstanding and on-going relationships with world class clients for example 15 projects for MCC at Lord’s Ground, 3 projects for developers Argent at King’s Cross, 3 projects for developer Urban Splash, 5 projects for the Royal Parks in London, 3 projects at Oxford University and 2 projects for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games;
  • Winner of over 50 design awards including Building magazine’s Young Architectural Practice of the Year and finalist for Architectural Practice of the Year;
  • Projects used extensively as exemplar case studies such as for the Passive Low Energy Architecture Conference in Cambridge  and the Building Research Establishment’s recent conference on shading in buildings.
  • A broad cross section of projects in sensitive locations ranging from the Hub in Regent’s Park to the Dickson Poon University of Oxford China Centre Building;

David Morley Architects are currently 60 strong, with a dynamic and energetic team of highly skilled and committed architects, designers and specialists. Value comes from a structured process of communication and dialogue, first to develop the brief through an iterative process, second to work with industry at an early stage to hone the most buildable design and third to measure and respond to feedback.

Environment

David Morley Architects have over 25 years of experience in producing environmentally sensitive buildings, pioneering the use of natural daylight in indoor playing areas. Our design process is primarily based on a strong commitment to sustainability using passive means, that is, by firstly considering building form, orientation and construction, and how it can influence and modify the environment within.

For a building to be truly sustainable it must be economically and functionally successful as well as achieving the goals of low environmental impact and low energy use, so the buildings and the installed services should be capable of change over the long-term. Our integrated approach and internal specialisms in the field of environmental design enable us to develop strategies for buildings that can enhance their environmental performance over their lifetime, creating a better asset for both our clients and their building users.

Our Environment Team provides consultancy on both DMA architectural projects and as support to other architectural practices:
