Architect & Interior Designer
Among Australasia’s leading design practices, DKO has been responsible for some of the region’s most innovative architecture, interior and urban design.
Having first opened its doors in 2000 DKO has grown from a small team delivering medium density residential architecture, into a practice of over 170 design professionals working out of multiple offices in Australia, New Zealand and Asia. While the practice has expanded, so too has the breadth of projects undertaken, from bespoke residences to distinctive residential communities, luxury hotels, unique hospitality and workplace interiors, urban design and large-scale master planning.
What remains consistent however, is the pursuit of high-quality architecture driven by the needs of the client, the site’s opportunities and the dynamic process of translating design intent into built outcome. At the core of DKO’s design philosophy, lies a commitment to an urban architecture that serves people, respects place and stands the test of time.
The passionate and accomplished interior design team at DKO focus on sharp, intelligent and articulated design. With understanding of how a space works, moves and moulds with the user, DKO’s intuitive approach encourages collaboration on each project, bringing individual strengths and varied experience to maintain a crisp, lively and reflective angle on their designs.
