ABOUT

The Firm

DP Architects practices as a multidisciplinary design group, One Global Studio, with 1,200 staff, 16 strategically linked international offices from Shanghai to London, 8 associated specialist companies, with a reach of 77 countries around the world.

 

As the practice of architecture becomes broader and more encompassing, DP recognises the potential of specialisation in our pursuit of a holistic design solution. DP provides a suite of integrated design services through our specialist consultancies:

An understanding of the needs of the people we are designing for is essential to creating a built environment that is purposeful and liveable. This lies at the core of each and every one of DP’s design work. 

Our design work benefits from the close collaboration and synergy among the various disciplines to strengthen our delivery of fully coordinated, context-appropriate and innovative design solutions. Our headquarters in Singapore houses the specialist companies and 10 typology research teams that perform as a consolidated resource for our designers around the world. With the diversified talents and extensive specialist knowledge, our interdisciplinary approach is driven by a common design belief and methodology.

 

Founded in 1967 on a deep concern for the built environment and the need to create architecture of excellence that enriches the human experience and spirit, DP continues to play a role in shaping cityscapes in Singapore, Asia, the Middle East and beyond. Driven by a strong philosophy devoted to human activity and civic quality of the city, our designers approach each project as the continuation of an ongoing exploration in shaping the public domain.  In our pursuit to improve the lives of people in cities, DP explores design techniques that inject new vitality into the city’s fabric. Our projects serve as regional focal points, hubs of human activity and social space.
