dRMM is a London-based studio of architects and designers, founded in 1995 by Alex de Rijke, Philip Marsh and Sadie Morgan. The practice takes pride in carrying out work that is innovative, high quality and socially useful. It has a track record of creating extraordinary architecture within the standard constraints of the construction industry. Its radical projects are led by site, client needs, concept and construction, rather than formulaic or style-based decisions.
All of dRMM’s completed works have received critical acclaim and professional recognition. The first project, No. one Centaur Street, won numerous awards including “RIBA London Building of the Year” and most recently, an extension to Clapham Manor Primary School by dRMM was shortlisted for the 2010 Stirling Prize (the Oscars of the architecture world).
