Drummonds is an RIBA Chartered Practice initially established in January 2010. The practice was founded by David Drummond, an RIBA registered Architect, who relocated from London to Dorset to pursue his interest in traditional vernacular architecture.
David graduated from Glasgow in 1991 and after qualifying as an Architect he went on to work for local practices in Scotland before widening his experience by joining Albert Speer and Partners ASP based in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. He worked on a variety of industrial and commercial office buildings many of which went on to win several awards.
After spending 10 years in Germany, learning to speak fluent German and gaining experience in a range of projects including the Commerzbank, Deutsche Bank Traders Center and several Media Distribution Centres located within Europe and Asia, he returned to the UK. On his return he joined the world renowned practice of Foster and Partners working on the Gibraltar Masterplan and the Aldwych Hotel located in Central London. Foster&Partners
To further enhance his UK experience David successfully led major commercial developments in London and was also involved in the design of a number of exclusive private villas, schools and the redevelopment of several listed buildings.
David has dealt with corporate clients over an extensive portfolio of work focusing on key commercial projects for major companies including IBM, EDF and Deutsche Bank. His portfolio includes industrial, educational, military and leisure schemes giving him wide range of expertise across a number of sectors. David designed the Hinkley Point Nuclear masterplan and led the team designing the Turbine Hall.
Since establishing Drummonds and working from a small studio located in proximity to Sherborne, Dorset the practice has focused on smaller residential schemes. These projects range from modest extensions through to luxury high spec private villas in London. Drummonds has established close working relationships with a number of other practices located both in Somerset and London.
