Zuber Dobson Architects (ZDA) are a London based practice first established in 2008. Directors, Luke and Simon have over 45 combined years experience in the industry.
“We have previously found that our best projects attract a more enthusiastic and talented team of individuals who collectively take those ventures much further. Our goal has since been to surround ourselves with good people. We figure if we can do that we must be doing something right.”
“Working with a likeminded team of people that includes you, the client, has many rewards. Together with the same goal we create buildings of greater value that help to further enrich people’s lives.”
“We care and invest a lot of time over a long period on a single project. It is then no surprise, on a somewhat more selfish note, that a key goal is also to simply enjoy the process and people we work with.”
