For almost 25 years, architectural practice PDP London has been pivotal in shaping the London landscape.

From delivering hotels such as 45 Park Lane, in collaboration with The Office of Thierry W Despont, to grand scale developments like Chelsea Barracks and Lillie Square; and from the Ivy Chelsea Garden restaurant on the King’s Road to helping to define the prime residential portfolio in Covent Garden for Capco (including The Southampton, The Beecham, 4 Henrietta Street, 14-15 King Street), this is a studio working with some of the most high profile properties and impeccable addresses in the capital. PDP London produces progressive and design-orientated architecture, firmly rooted in quality and excellence, every time.

The story began in a converted school in Belgravia when Paul Davis & Partners was formed by a small group (the company was rebranded as PDP London in 2015) wishing to push the boundaries and bring a fresh approach to architecture – one that was based on following a rigorous design process to produce beautiful, bespoke solutions for clients, rather than working to an imposed in-house style. After success in delivering prime residential interiors in the capital (such as 3-10 Grosvenor Crescent with Helen Green Design), PDP London started to export this brand of architecture and design internationally. In 2004, they began by working with Grosvenor to re-envision the ethos and quality of the residential brand in Hong Kong, mainland China and Japan. In 2010, PDP London opened an office in Hong Kong.

Over the years, the team has delivered both residential and commercial concepts for the world’s finest interior designers – such as Linley, Helen Green, 1508 and Nicky Haslam – and through the knowledge it has gained, last year PDP London developed
its own small but thriving interior design studio.

Combining a background that stems from technical excellence with the experience of producing detailed construction packages, the interior design studio is going from strength to strength. The team is now proudly designing and delivering both architecture and interiors for myriad projects – something which streamlines the delivery process for clients and sets the practice apart from others in the industry – both in London and further afield.

PDP London continues to collaborate with other leading designers across all disciplines, from landscape design to furniture production and art, in the delivery of both contemporary buildings and sensitive restorations of the London vernacular, in prestigious, unique and historic settings. The result is timeless designs of a lasting quality that are creatively tailored to each client’s needs.

As PDP London looks to the future, it has recently secured its first exciting project in Cuba, which it is developing from Madrid and is exploring the possibility of moving to new premises in one of the capital’s most exciting creative hubs – marking the beginning of the next chapter for this highly prestigious international practice.
