About Eleanor Dodman Architects.

 

Practice

Eleanor Dodman Architects is an architectural practice based in London. Our work strives to be both pragmatic and straightforward yet materially rich and joyful. We believe the richest work emerge through dialogue with our clients and by fully engaging with the peculiarities of each specific project — be it a piece of furniture, an exhibition or a building.  

We enjoy working across all different stages of a project from design feasibility to detailed design and delivery. For any enquiries or to discuss your project, please do not hesitate to contact us.
