Creating Meaningful Spaces Through Architectural Designs

Based in the cultural city of Leicester, we are a chartered architect firm that provides design services for both commercial and residential projects all across the Midlands. Our team of experienced architects, technicians and designers have a wealth of knowledge and are dedicated to providing our clients with creative and innovative design solutions. We work with businesses and individuals of all sizes, from commercial businesses to individual homeowners.

We offer a range of services that include architectural design, feasibility studies, planning applications, technical drawings and more. Our team is passionate about architecture and are dedicated to providing quality services that meet our clients’ needs. We believe that good design should be accessible to everyone, and we strive to create designs that are both functional and beautiful.

Leading RIBA Practice Since 2013

As a RIBA chartered practice in both the residential and commercial fields, we offer services across the RIBA work stages from inception right through to project completion. 

Our team of architects, technologists and designers have years of experience working on a variety of projects, from multiple units to individual buildings, both in the private and public sectors. Our vision is to promote the importance of sustainable architecture in the built environment that is responsive to the technical, aesthetic and budgetary expectations of our clients. We work closely with our clients to ensure that their vision is brought to life, no matter the scale or budget of the project. 

We hope you take a look at some of our previous work and get in touch if you have any questions or would like to discuss a project with us.

Our Core Values

We are committed to maintaining a professional and collaborative attitude with all our clients, and always go the extra mile to deliver beyond expectations. We firmly believe in creating a lasting relationship with our clients, based on mutual trust and respect.

We focus on designing bespoke, purposeful spaces that are both well-made and well-used. Our hands-on approach is a strategic tool that allows us to propose creative design solutions to the contemporary world. We are committed to creating places with personality and purpose that are loved by all.

We are committed to creating a workplace where everyone is welcome and appreciated, and we are proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We believe that a diverse workforce leads to better design, and we are committed to creating a more inclusive world through our work.

At DSA we believe working as a team creates better designs and improves work efficiency. With our combined experience and expertise and ability to trust each other’s instincts and skill sets, we are able to produce exceptional architectural designs.

We believe that architecture should never be static – it should be constantly evolving to meet the needs of its users. We are also committed to sustainable design, and we are always looking for new ways to reduce our impact on the environment.
