About Us

Founded in 1985, David Collins Studio is an award-winning interior, architecture and product Studio, delivering internationally recognised hospitality, residential and retail destinations across the globe.  The Studio works with brands that represent the best in their field and with private clients that share its obsession with detail, craft and refinement.

Recent projects include the public areas, restaurant and bar at Nobu Hotel Portman Square, and a show apartment at The Bryanston, Hyde Park.

How would you describe your style?

"Working with clients who represent the best in their fields, David Collins Studio utilises its global network of artists, artisans and craftspeople to continually reinvent the concept of timeless glamour.

The ethos of the decorative arts movement underpins the work of David Collins Studio, upon which the design of each project is conceived with a singular concept and delivered with a clarity of vision. 

Since its inception in 1985, the Studio has worked across hospitality, residential and retail projects, its portfolio now extending to the maritime sphere, and is always cross-pollinating its multi-sector experience to bring a unique point of view to each project. The Studio instils new narratives within, and brings a sense of place beyond, the immediate location to each project through the layering of details, materials and colours, curating a contemporary cabinet of curiosities within each space."
