“A building is only as good as its Client
The DHaus Company is an experimental design and architectural practice. We experiment by applying mathematical formulas to Architecture, Furniture and Lighting. Our practice draws inspiration from experimental mathematical formulae and the natural and built world around us.
We believe every project deserves a bespoke architectural response.
How we work
Successful buildings are not solely the result of good architects; a good client relationship is key to the success of our practice and the projects we undertake.
We approach every project with an open mindset – by listening closely to our clients and by taking time to hone their priorities and ambitions through a process of testing, speculation and refinement – we treat the design process as an ongoing conversation with our client.
Innovation in design
As a practice, we take inspiration from related fields of industry, seeking out new technologies and construction methods to create conceptually unique buildings and interiors. Innovation is cultivated in the office through interrogating the physical limits of materials and through constantly challenging ourselves to achieve our clients brief in new and challenging ways.
We draw inspiration from the world of mathematics and art and believe every project deserves a bespoke architectural response. This approach is born out of a careful analysis of the relationship between the site, client aspirations and cost. Innovation and sustainability are key drivers in all the work we produce.
