Our award-winning team specialise principally in residential architecture and luxury interior designs. For HWCD, the true design lies in creativity, expertise and personalised results to make a better living environment. We form our design by using what we call ”the making of luxury” to enrich the experiences and overcome challenges. Our aim is to create living spaces that are enduringly elegant and timeless for our exclusive private clients and property developers.
Interior design, interior architecture, creative direction. Our design aesthetic is wholly contemporary yet respectfully classic. Our design is bold, comfortable and elegantly masculine. Holding craftsmanship in high regard, we combine warm materials with clean lines, textural palettes and ?ne detailing.
The end result is spaces that are considered and welcoming, spaces that can be celebrated for effortless style and homes that can be lived in.

DEXTER MOREN ASSOCIATES
DMA (Dexter Moren Associates) started out in 1992 with just three people in a small Marylebone office. We have come a long way since then and now as a team of over 70, based in Camden Town, are widely recognised as one of London’s leading hospitality design studios. We work across the entire hospitality spectrum from limited service through to the luxury end for a wide range of leading international hoteliers, independent operators and developers. We place our design-led ethos of “creating places people want to stay” at the heart of every project we do whether it be a hotel, resort, residential development or sports stadium. We deliver commercial, creative thinking and believe in a collaborative design approach with our client’s interests firmly at the heart of what we do. Our portfolio encompasses a combination of conversion, extension and new build projects bringing together a mix of skills and services including market and site analysis, massing and feasibility studies, space planning, technical detailing and construction expertise in order to establish the best design solution for any given project. We recognise the importance of designing developments that carefully build on the dynamic and culture of a neighbourhood, not simply preserving a place but allowing it to grow. Our team of talented hospitality designers makes up a quarter of our practice and has been recognised with multiple awards for projects including the luxury boutique Ampersand Hotel, Apero Bar & Restaurant, and The Distillery Bar at Hilton London Bankside.
