At Holloway and Davel Architects, we specialise in crafting bespoke designs for various spaces, including commercial, hospitality, residential, and multi-family projects. Our inspiration stems from a wide range of sources, such as fashion, nature, film, art, and global culture. This diverse approach ensures that our designs are unique, capturing the essence of each project while delivering exceptional and tailored solutions.

“Designing a building is a lovely journey, and keeping the client involved with each step is what makes the process beautiful” 

We believe that every project has a unique soul, just as distinctive as each client. Establishing what is authentic, appropriate and contextualized and doing so in a sustainable manner is the most challenging and rewarding of tasks.

Our architectural firm thrives on collaboration and mutual support, achieving shared goals for greater success. We value every individual’s ideas and ensure expert guidance throughout our clients’ journey, encompassing designers, client experience consultants, manufacturers, and installers. Our priority is delivering seamless and enriching experiences.



Going far beyond the call of duty. Doing more that others would expect. This is what excellence is all about. It comes from striving, maintaining the highest standards, looking after the smallest detail and going the extra mile. Excellence means caring. It means making a special effort to do more.
