Following our continued growth and recent successes, we are really pleased to announce the promotion of four new Associates within the practice – Tom, David, Claire & Tomi. Since joining the practice they have all played important roles in several of the practice’s residential, office, retail, and industrial sector projects and become actively involved in the practice’s internal and external activities.

Tomi  joined the London studio in 2004, leading many of the practices successful retail and regeneration projects including  Hempstead valley, Intu Lakeside, Midsummer Place and Sailmakers. Tomi has a high degree of design intellegence, has a design hand in countless other schemes.

Claire joined the practice in 2014 as an architectural assistant; she has since become a qualified architect and played an active part in the practice’s internal project management team.  She recently lead the historic Coach House office refurbishment in Chapel Allerton and is currently taking a key role in all phases of our mixed-use redevelopment at Soyo in Leeds.

David joined the DLG team in 2017 as an experienced architect and has been integral to developing the practice’s BIM and Principal Designer capabilities. He plays an active lead on the technical design and delivery of key projects, including several industrial  schemes and the soon to complete 1 Sovereign Quay development in Leeds.

Tom has been with DLG since 2021 when he joined to lead the design and delivery of the south Leeds regeneration masterplan for Sweet Street West, which will bring forward a new 1200 home community.  His extensive planning and construction experience has seen him lead a number of significant projects in the region including the award winning Hudson Quarter in York for Palace Capital as well as other successful student residential projects.

The partners are delighted to announce these promotions which we believe highlight the strength, quality and experience in both studios and look forward to them helping take the practice forward and to explore new opportunities.
