David James Architects & Partners – a new era…

Award winning Dorset architects David James Architects & Partners are embarking on an exciting new chapter. Founded in 2009, the practice has gone from strength to strength over the years.

Managing Director David James has been joined by his new Partner, and Director, Laurie Marlow, jointly implementing architectural design and planning at David James Architects, with the assistance of their experienced team of architects, designers and technicians. Hortensia Vina-Garcia, James Baron, and Ian Gault take the role of Associate Directors, heading the practice’s other main fields of expertise in interior design, detailed design, and project management.

It has been a fantastic year so far for the practice, having won their category in the International Design & Architecture Awards 2016 for the third year running, and being awarded the BUILD 2016 Architecture Award for best design led architectural practice – Dorset. David James Architects also gained further recognition at this year’s International Property Awards (UK), with their design ‘Moondance’ winning the Best Residential Development (Dorset) category for developers Towncourt Homes.

David James is thrilled to be joined by his new talented team of directors, and is looking forward to continuing to produce the exceptional, award winning design that sets David James Architects apart from the crowd.
