DRDH Architects Practice Information
drdharchitects is a London-based architecture practice, established in 2000 by Daniel Rosbottom and David Howarth. The emerging practice has achieved critical recognition both for its built work and in competition.
In 2008, the architecture practice was chosen by Herzog & de Meuron to be one of 100 young architects from 27 countries to design a villa for a new cultural city in Ordos, Inner Mongolia, China as part of the Ordos 100 project, curated by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. Detailed plans for the 1,000 sq m villa were submitted in September 2008.
In 2007, DRDH was one of six chosen by the American Institute of Architects for New Practices: London an exhibition at its New York gallery space.
In 2005, drdharchitects won an invited international competition to design an apartment building in the Hafencity, Hamburg. This project led to DRDH Architects being invited to participate in a competition to develop a masterplan for the new Hafencity University in the City.
Also in 2005, the architectural practice was placed second in the UK Young Architect of the Year Award.
Completed projects by DRDH include The Workshop, an office extension in Sheffield (2008), a gallery space at London Metropolitan School of Architecture (2008), an office interior for RichMix cultural centre in Shoreditch, London (2006) and a temporary pavilion at the British Library for the London Architecture Biennale (2006).
DRDH Architects is part of the Keilder Partnerships Art and Architecture framework panel for projects at Keilder Water and Forest Park in Northumbria.
drdharchitects has most recently been shortlisted, in association with Ghent-based Jan de Vylder Architecten and consultants Technum, for the design of a community building and 50 residential units in the city of Aarshot, Flanders; and for a new library and learning centre in the Belgium city of Kortrijk.
The DRDH Architects practice is based in the English capital.
