Back in November 2020, after 40 years in Loughborough, we made the decision to relocate our studio to the heart of Birmingham city centre.  Our aim is to build on new and existing relationships with Birmingham businesses and organisations and become even more involved in transforming this great city.

Our Birmingham studio is headed by Passivhaus Expert and Associate Nassia, whose team of architects and technicians is growing as is DB3’s involvement in the city.

“There are no words to describe just how much it means to us to have won the ‘Architect of the Year Award’ in the city of Birmingham. It is an absolute honour to receive this recognition and we would like to thank not only those who nominated and voted for us but also everyone who has supported us since our move to this great city.”
