Deborah Saunt



Deborah founded the award-winning architectural studio DSDHA in 1998.

Her work blurs the boundaries between landscape and architecture, art and urbanism, and questions our preconceptions of the city.
 DSDHA’s award-winning projects span from highly acclaimed individual buildings, which celebrate materiality and the art of making, through to macro-scaled urban strategies such as the redesign of Tottenham Court Road in London’s West End. Deborah completed her PhD thesis as part of the RMIT Practice Research programme. She is currently Inter-Practice Year Director of the newly founded London School of Architecture as well as a member of various prestigious panels, including the RIBA Awards Group.
