Dive are award winning architects who have been based in London since 2001 and from 2009 in Stockholm. Our work varies from urban, cultural and commercial to private projects, not just in Europe but also in Africa and the Middle East. Our clients include, British Council, More London and Urban Splash. Completed projects have attracted much attention from international press.
Dive was started by Ia Hjärre and Andy Nettleton. We believe creative, high quality architecture is the result of a close dialogue with our clients. Realising a project can be a long and demanding process. We see our role to approach every project with energy and enthusiasm, from idea to the final result.
We have happy clients, which leads to repeat work and aspire to provide a fun working partner in all projects - every project is a joint effort. Our aim is to be good communicators, an essential part of any successful collaboration.
Dive's design principles are to provide a strong architectural approach combining conceptual clarity with a large element of playfulness. We want our work to make people smile. We want our work to be personal.
Our desire is to make architecture accessible and to build good quality buildings.
