DSH was founded in 1997 and has been committed to participation in the design community through competitions, lectures, speculative proposals and education. Their work has appeared in publications and exhibitions both locally and abroad.

DSH conjoins an attention to material detail with broader conceptual, sensory and operational research. Residential, commercial, urban and landscape projects are designed at a range of scale and specificity. Each project is situated in an expanded context of contemporary formal, structural and environmental concerns as well as issues unearthed by a consideration of history.
