I’m David Holland, an award-winning architect and an advocate for sustainable and ethical living. I design new homes, and work with existing ones.
I am uniquely positioned to be able to offer an extremely personal service, backed by extensive professional experience and know-how. I work on projects that prioritise sustainability, craftsmanship, and simple, good-quality materials. My projects are characterised by their simple under-stated elegance, and careful detailing.
I founded my own design studio in early 2019 with the goal of providing a uniquely personal architectural service to residential clients that share my enthusiasm for sustainability, quality and craftsmanship. It’s a small studio - in fact it’s just me - and that's a deliberate choice of mine. Running a small studio comes with a freedom that allows me to work without the financial and managerial pressures of running a large practice. That means clients get a better service, and better architecture.
Put simply, I help like-minded people create homes that they love. We start as collaborators, and frequently become friends.
I generally work in the UK (specifically the Midlands, Cotswolds, and the Welsh borders), but I’m also open to working further afield in the right circumstances.
I am also able to introduce clients to other like-minded landscape architects, interior designers, structural engineers, builders and crafts-people.
