DIPESH SHAH

PRINCIPAL + SENIOR ARCHITECT

Dipesh first fell into architecture by chance and has since had the conviction he had found his true calling. He started his professional career with a small practice moving on to larger firms. During this time, he collected a number of different project types under his belt from domestic to commercial, healthcare and higher education with contract values ranging from £10,000 to £360m.

After accumulating all these experiences, Dipesh launched his own practice in 2007, where he continues to champion a wide range of works. He is a firm believer that a successful project stems from efficient communication and clarity in the delivery of concepts. For Dipesh, there are no problems; there are only opportunities.
