We are delighted to announce that our colleague Bushra Mohamed has been shortlisted for the RIBA Journal's Rising Star Award. Bushra joined DKA in 2018 and qualified as an architect in 2020.

Oct 2020Royal Academy Summer Exhibition

A model of the Gradel Quadrangles at New College Oxford has been selected for inclusion in this year's Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Carved out of a block of Ancaster limestone by the stonemasons Grants of Shoreditch, the model shows the intended form, material and craftsmanship of the building that is currently on site and due for completion in 2023. The exhibition is open from 6th October to 3rd January 2021. For more information, visit the project webpage

Sep 2020Greenwich Site Progress

The construction of two workspace buildings in Greenwich as part of the Design District continues apace. The giant brick colonnade to building A4 is beginning to take shape. Scaled to the district rather than the building, it extends a generous welcome to the whole site. For more information about the project, see David Kohn's interview with Jemima Burrell about the influences on the design, hedgehogs and foxes at the Design District website.
