Since its foundation in 1994, PDP London has honed its expertise in delivering both contemporary buildings and sensitive restorations of the London vernacular, in prestigious, unique and historic settings.

Mindful of traditional values and architectural heritage, and with a desire to create world-class architecture, PDP London has been pivotal in shaping the built landscape and public realm both in London and further afield. It has evolved to export this great British brand of architecture internationally, starting by working with Grosvenor in Hong Kong, mainland China and Japan. 2018 has seen changes, challenges and expansion into new markets. Most recently, the practice has secured a 750-hectare, $900m masterplan at Punta Colorada in western Cuba, to create an exceptional new golf destination at the heart of a luxurious tropical resort. The proposed scheme will also include three hotels, a marina, six residential villages and an equestrian centre, with polo fields and riding trails. Following this appointment, the practice opened a studio in Madrid, marking the start of a thrilling new chapter.

PDP’s Hong Kong Studio is currently working on the prestigious ‘Landmark on Robson’, situated on Vancouver’s answer to New York’s Fifth Avenue – an incredible contemporary development of two residential towers, with swimming pool, landscaped gardens, retail space and two floors of offices.

In London, work has started on the site of the former In & Out Club on Piccadilly – now Cambridge House Hotel and Residences. Previously an aristocratic residence and a revered London club, the property is a rare example of an ‘hôtel particulier’: a formal architectural set-piece typical of 17th-century French design, where the house is set back from the street and fronted by a private courtyard. PDP London’s heritage- driven scheme is for a 102-key, five-star hotel and seven serviced apartments, with a signature chef restaurant and bar (accessible to the public), together with a spa, pool, cellar wine bar, classically finished lounges, meeting rooms and a grand ballroom.

Also under construction are Regent’s Crescent, a residential development in Marylebone; Dovehouse Street luxury extra care scheme for Auriens; 196-222 King’s Road (mixed-use development) for Cadogan Estate; and, imminently, Pavilion Road near Harrods. The new year will see PDP London move its London HQ to Eccleston Yards – Grosvenor’s vibrant new hub on the boundaries of Victoria and Belgravia. This move, as well as providing studio space, will make the practice part of a thriving and connected community of like-minded creatives, businesses and residents. Eccleston Yards is an important part of Grosvenor’s 20-year vision for Mayfair and Belgravia, and something which PDP London is excited to be a part of.

PDP’s design philosophy is an approach rather than a specific architectural style, reflecting what it sees as key British values of professionalism, respect and honesty, coupled with innovation, creativity and cool design. They believe being British is also about having respect for the legacy of our surroundings, and a culture of collaboration with the best specialists in their fields. The practice strives for creative, stylish and timeless solutions which don’t mindlessly follow trends but rather adapt to each brief – marrying the history of existing buildings with the future of contemporary design.
