Established in 2000 as Michael Dales Partnership, now known as MDP Architects, we are an award-winning architectural studio with extensive experience in works to ecclesiastical, listed and historic buildings, as well as private residential dwellings. We work on a wide variety of projects at a range of scales and pride ourselves on a rigour and attention to detail in all the work that we do, a process which often reflects the historical and cultural importance of the buildings that we work with.
Our work is grounded in the creation of meaningful relationships with all our clients. These range from individual family units- couples, parents, children, grandparents- to larger businesses and community groups. All, however, share a unique relationship with their building which we seek to understand and enhance with our work. This starting point is key in order to develop and interpret the complexities of their brief and to translate this in to high-quality meaningful architecture.
Each project and situation is unique, and we strive to create bespoke solutions to the briefs of each of our clients. Our built work shares a focus on maximising the potential of natural materials and the careful use of detail to enrich our projects. Our experience in heritage situations also allows us to unlock the value of existing fabric through its creative re-use or adaptation.
We offer a complete architectural service from conception to completion, including feasibility studies, submission of statutory applications, preparation of technical information and on-site attendance and contract administration. As members of the Green Register, we are also committed to the promotion and advancement of sustainable building practices and the ongoing reduction in construction & lifetime building energy use.
