AJ Corus 40 Under 40

de Metz Forbes Knight (dMFK), formerly de Metz Architects (established in 1996), is a prolific, design-led, London-based commercial practice. The three partners met while studying, and worked at Moshe Safdie, Richard Rogers and Lifschutz Davidson respectively.

Past projects include the education centre, staff restaurant and curators’ offices at Tate Modern; Sardo, an Italian restaurant in London’s Primrose Hill; and a media centre in Chiswick. dMFK was one of three practices asked to come up with a proposal for an Orthodox synagogue in Golders Green, north London.

The practice’s projects are informed by a rigorously clear diagram, generous-feeling spaces and a conscious expression of ‘patina’, whether within an existing building or in the generation of a new facade. The practice’s goal is ‘to create appropriate, timeless buildings that improve with age’.
