Making architecture is an adventure better done in company.

Morris+Company is a company of architects. We are listeners, makers, curators, narrators, experimenters and innovators. We are bold activists and obsessive fabricators. And we are connected by our love of making buildings.

Our work is the product of craft and humanity. The skill of making buildings may be specialist but human experience is universal, and it is from that experience that our architecture grows. People love, live, work, are born and die in our buildings; we bring them into being and leave them to become themselves.

Our buildings are the result of rich and constructive discourse with our clients. Our methodology is inquisitive, explorative and powerful, and gives us new perspectives on a brief. The communicative, iterative nature of traditional model-making is as fundamental to our process as the possibilities offered by newer technologies.

Morris+Company was born in 2018, and is an evolution of Duggan Morris Architects. The same restive creative spirit, developed over twelve years as Duggan Morris, is the foundation of our renewed practice, but our reassembly as Morris+Company has brought a broader field of vision and more collegiate way of working.

Our home is London, and much of our work is in the United Kingdom, but our worldview is wide and the company – currently a family of around 50 members – diverse. Our base in Copenhagen acts as test-bed for a more deeply collaborative approach, as well as a doorway into a new design territory. We are co-founders of Londonon, a research programme which advocates design learning through global co-operation.



Footnote: Morris+Company Limited is the new corporate name of Duggan Morris Architects Limited with effect from 16th July 2018. Duggan Morris Architects was co-founded by Joe Morris and Mary Duggan. As the practice has evolved and the range of work became far more diverse, the founding directors reached a mutually amicable agreement to follow separate paths, to capitalise on areas of interest specific to each. Duggan Morris Architects continues under the direction of Joe Morris with a new team of directors and associates. Mary Duggan has taken her work forward with a new practice in July 2017, Mary Duggan Architects.
