Dominic McKenzie Architects (DMA) is an award-winning practice based in North London with work frequently published in the UK and internationally.
The practice specialises in conceptual, design-led residential work which is simultaneously highly tuned to the history and context of a given building or site.
The practice’s profile is growing – in 2014 ’Eidolon House’ won the Sunday Times British Homes Award for ‘Best One-Off House below 2500sqft’ and was included as a feature project in the Channel 4 TV series ‘Inside Out Homes’. More recently DMA was selected for Wallpaper magazine’s ‘Architect’s Directory – a selection of ‘the world’s best young architectural talent’ and was included in the Architecture Foundation’s ‘New Architects 3’ book which showcases ‘the best new practices in the UK since 2005’. In 2019 DMA’s project Tower House won ‘Best Historic Intervention’ at the New London Architecture, Don’t Move Improve awards.
Dominic McKenzie studied at Cambridge University and the Royal College of Art. Prior to establishing his own practice in 2011, Dominic was project architect on a number of multi award-winning projects including Quarterhouse in Folkestone which won a 2009 RIBA award and Accordia in Cambridge which won the 2008 Stirling Prize – the UK’s highest architectural award.
