Hattie Nelson

Director

Born and raised in Dorset, I studied my BA in Architecture at Oxford Brookes, before moving to London to gain my Masters at London Met and Postgraduate Diploma at the University of Westminster. 

 

I joined DPA after completing my Masters, working on hospitality, commercial residential and industrial schemes. After running many successful projects for the practice, I became a Director in 2021.

 

I enjoy working with Clients and construction teams across different sectors, taking particular interest on the end user experience and longevity of design.

 

Much of our passionate office chat is centred around travel, food, restaurants and of course design! I love to keep busy, exploring what the city has to offer as well as getting away to the countryside or abroad at every opportunity.

 

Mal Parker 

Director

Born in Cambridge, and educated as an architect in Oxford, I have been with Dunthorne Parker for over 40 years. 

I have considerable experience in organising and delivering high quality projects within the timeframe and cost constraints required by the client – specialising in office, industrial, retail, and educational schemes, and historic structures of all periods. 

Clients rely on my honest, forthright, and professional approach to contractual and planning matters. 

And life away from work centres on travel, sports — both watching and partaking, and any form of merriment.

 

Matt Knivett 

Architect

My architectural journey started at Cardiff University on the Architecture Bsc, followed by a year out at a small studio in New York, working on commercial fit-out and one off residential projects. I then joined the newly formed London School of Architecture in 2019, enjoying the city-centric approach the school took.

Following the Diploma course, I joined Dunthorne Parker Architects in 2019, helping with all elements of the studios design work. I have played an active role in achieving planning permission across industrial and developer led residential schemes. More recently I have enjoyed growing the studios design work on historic buildings, developing a sesitive yet commercial approach. 

 

Outside of the studio, I am a keen cyclist, skier and avid rugby fan. I have recently been putting my DIY skills to the test whilst renovating an art deco flat. 

We are a studio based architectural practice located in Central London, producing commercial architecture of distinction, character and vitality. We strive to understand the brief, the client’s needs, the budget, programming, and all individual constraints, and then to exceed all expectations.

 

Feasibility & Design Development

 

Your building, objective and vision is different from everyone else’s! We take this on board to help develop what you have into what you need, be it on a personal or commercial level. We use both creative and realistic solutions to maximise the potential of your property, showing you what can be achieved through sketches, layouts and 3D imagery.

 

Planning Applications

 

A large part of our job is spent developing designs to secure Planning Permission for Clients. We know that each project is unique, as are the local councils and town planning requirements across the country. Strategy is key when it comes to Planning Applications and we will guide you through the process.

 

Technical Design & Construction

 

We deliver strong technical design packages to take your project into construction. This package is made up of layouts drawings, construction details, specifications and sample packs. With a high level of design detail, we can obtain competitive quotes from reputable contractors.

 

Fit-Out

 

Much of our work in commercial and hospitality sectors involves internal fit-out, transforming existing or black canvas shell units into full functioning spaces. We take the designs through a feasibility process, developing the Client’s concept and vision, designing the spaces, important quirky details and selecting materials. The designs are always holistically developed with much liaison between ourselves, the Landlord team, and the wider Client design team, ensuring that all regulations are met and all services are fully integrated.
