Nathanael Dorent Architecture is an award winning architecture practice whose projects range in scale from furniture design to urban development. Attentive to each context and situation, our work links research to practice to critically explore the relationship between social and spatial changes. We believe the use of digital technology crossed with an understanding of social transformation is key to the design of connective spaces. Our work has been exhibited in different galleries and widely published in a variety of design and research media.
