David is one of the founding directors of DSDHA. He has been responsible for a broad range of projects including Edmund de Waal’s studio and gallery in South London, a range of residential projects in central London, Stirling Prize nominated Christ’s College in Guildford, and a number of mixed use and education projects. All of the work fuses an interest in materiality and art with inventive architectural approaches. 

After studying at Cambridge University School of Architecture, David worked for Tim Ronalds and Erick van Egeraat in Rotterdam and London prior to establishing DSDHA with Deborah Saunt. He has lectured widely in the UK and abroad and has been a unit master at London Metropolitan University, Cambridge University and the Architectural Association for the last 10 years. He is currently an external examiner at Nottingham University and a CABE National Design Review Panel Member.
