DP Architects has steadily grown beyond our home in Singapore across Asia. Upon building a strong presence in the Middle East, Europe is the next natural step. Thus, as part of DPA’s global expansion, DP International (UK) was established. Located in the heart of London, our Europe branch gives the larger DP group of companies a strategic foothold in the West. 

Design excellence is central to the focus of our UK branch. To gain recognition as a world-class design office, our team of professionals are simultaneously participating in global design competitions and taking on unique local projects. One of the office’s earliest successes was winning an international design competition for two residential towers – namely, Marco Polo and James Cook Buildings. The towers are developed by Oxley Holdings and Ballymore, and forms the last phase of their vibrant master plan of Royal Wharf Mariner’s Quarter. Other notable commissions include Millennium Hotel Mayfair London, a high-end hospitality project located near Bond Street in central London, as well as Bonnevaux Meditation Retreat Centre in Poitiers, France. 
 

DP International (UK) works closely with our headquarters in Singapore and all DP offices globally to offer the full suite of services that the DP Architects group of companies can provide.

Mariner's Quarter
UK > London

Mariner's Quarter

2017
Mariner’s Quarter comprises the Marco Polo and James Cook apartment towers within the Royal Wharf master plan in London. The Marco Polo building, at 58.25 metres, is the tallest waterfront building anchoring the entire development’s corner. To maintain a dialogue between the two buildings, the James Cook building, at 40.25 metres tall, shares a similar façade treatment while reversing its colour palette for subtle differentiation.

The Greenfield - Forest Green Rovers Stadium

2016
As part of the international design competition for the Forest Green Rovers FC’s new ground near Stroud, United Kingdom, The Greenfield was shortlisted from 50 submitted designs. The proposed design envisions a sustainable development that is enlivened by people all year round, guided by an eco-centric approach.  An interactive park was proposed, which serves the community throughout the year while preserving the rural aspect of the site and its indigenous flora and fauna. True to its name, it is a stadium which is well concealed and ties seamlessly into the environment.


Shah Jahan Mosque

Shah Jahan Mosque

2015
This project is a concept master plan design study for the Shah Jahan Mosque, completed in 1889, the earliest purpose-built mosque in Northern Europe. The original prayer hall, which accommodates 60 worshippers, has the second-highest national listing in the UK as a building of architectural and historic importance. The brief called for a master plan which not only fits the existing community better, but allows for considerable expansion and the inclusion of outreach facilities to welcome Muslim and non-Muslim visitors and scholars.
