UK: Architecture and design firm Dexter Moren Associates has rebranded to Studio Moren, effective immediately.
Based in Camden, London, Studio Moren employs a team of 70 architecture and interior designers who work predominantly in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
For the past 30 years, the firm has evolved to apply its hospitality knowledge across different sectors including high-end residential, student accommodation, senior housing and commercial assets.
The rebrand reflects the collaborative approach and diversity of Studio Moren, and a new website will be launched in October.
Practice founder and partner, Dexter Moren, said: “For some years the RIBA advised us we were too exposed to a single market and that worried me until I realised it was preferable to be a leader in one sector than master of none. The hotel specialisation has also enabled us to bring our expertise into the many sectors of student, co-living, co-working, later living and BTR projects where hospitality is now a primary focus.
“Today we are led by a management team of 17 who are also co-owners of the studio and together we have an impressive cumulative total of 243 years of working together. Everyone contributes and the combination of everyone’s individual brilliance creates a stand-out end product. In the spirit of inclusivity, it seems time to evolve the name yet again to reflect our greater team and diversity and I am pleased to announce that from this point onwards we will be known as Studio Moren.”
Recent projects which Studio Moren has completed include: The Westin London City, The Hotel Villa Phamphili Roma, and 8-10 George Street, London. Current projects include the conversion of a former London police station into a luxury hotel, an Autograph Collection hotel in Abastumani, Georgia, as well as a private and affordable housing scheme in Great Oakley, Essex.
