David Kohn Architects is a London-based practice established in 2007, working internationally on arts, education and residential projects.

Excellence in design is pursued through collaborating closely with our clients, consultant teams, contractors and end users. Innovation is cultivated through office-based and academic research into materials, construction techniques and the cultural contexts of each project.

DKA is currently delivering major projects for the V&A, New College Oxford, and the ICA. Past projects include A Room for London in collaboration with artist Fiona Banner, the White Building in Hackney Wick and an award-winning restaurant at the Royal Academy of Arts.

Notable shortlisted international competition entries include the British Pavilion at the Milan Expo (2015), the cultural quarter for the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, or Olympicopolis (2015) and the West Kowloon Cultural District Pavilion (2014).

DKA has built a reputation for the quality of its design, winning World Interior of the Year, Architect of the Year, RIBA, D&AD, Design Museum Designs of the Year, New London and Condé Nast awards.
