DEGW's partner in charge of architecture, Stephen Greenberg, has quit to set up on his own. His decision follows the departure of two other senior architects, Andy Wells and David Sadeghi, and looks set to trigger a change in strategy for the multidisciplinary practice.

During more than six years with DEGW, Greenberg oversaw work such as the masterplan for the Victoria & Albert Museum and the exhibitions consultancy for the new Urbis centre in Manchester.

Former marketing chief Ken Giannini has taken over architecture operations and plans to increase the practice's work in the area of refurbishment projects for developers and landlords. The focus on refurbishment will be matched by attempts to bring in more educational work, but new-build office schemes, such as DEGW's scheme for Boots the Chemist in Nottingham, will not be pursued as hard.

Giannini unveiled plans to recruit up to 10 new architects in the next 18 months in an effort to expand the practice. Greenberg described the separation as 'amicable' and said his new venture would tackle work 'from branding through to buildings', similar to Pentagram and Imagination.
