Integrating the disciplines of architecture, urban design, regional and environmental planning, landscape architecture and the environmental sciences as a single functional entity.

One of the founding objectives of DMP is to apply sustainable development principles to all spheres of our activities and to ensure practical results that help eradicate poverty and inequality, while protecting the integrity of the environment. We view each project as part of a greater system where support may be required on various scales ranging from the international sphere to site specific level.

This approach, together with our diverse and collective knowledge spanning almost three decades, has given rise to the appointment of the office by numerous international and national clients. Projects range from complex integrated development planning strategies to award-winning residential estates, commercial & mixed-use developments, golf estates, hotels & office parks.
