About us

DDWH Architects Ltd are a RIBA Chartered Practice, formed by Directors Warren Howling and Donika Dobruna, drawing on experience accumulated over two decades with London based offices. We have developed design expertise across a wide range of sectors and scales, from masterplanning and mixed-use urban regeneration, to small-scale development and refurbishment, on projects ranging in value between £30,000 and £250million.

This wide experience of different scales of development and construction enables us to provide an efficient service specific to each project; including a full range of architectural services, from inception through all stages of design, to management of the construction phase - delivered on a personal basis by the directors.

Our experience has been gained in a commercial environment – the importance of projects being delivered to programme and budget is well understood. Our design approach is informed by a comprehensive understanding of the planning process.

A commitment to environmentally responsible design has underpinned the careers of both Directors, many of the projects completed have utilised the latest techniques, materials and equipment to minimise environmental impact, long before legislation made this more of a requirement.

This knowledge and commitment to the design of environmentally appropriate solutions now infuses the work of DDWH Architects.

In providing a pivotal design role on a wide range of architectural, master planning and urban design projects, we have developed an enthusiastic and collaborative management style. This helps create an energetic team environment in which design team members and other disciplines can contribute fully, resulting in a corresponding increase in quality of the finished product.

DDWH Architects aim to combine design ability with commercial awareness, maximising the return on investment by the client, working effectively within the framework of programme and financial parameters.
