Douglas Lusardi Metcalfe

Andrew Douglas, Renato Lusardi and Alistair Metcalfe were partners in the architectural practice Douglas Lusardi Metcalfe and manufacturing practice Marinetime Ltd.

The emphasis was on conventional architectural work, shop-fitting and specialist one-off or short-run furniture production. "In the design-and-make furniture, DLM pride themselves on their inventive approach to detailing...Their approach is to think laterally, often looking to an adjacent field such as automotive technology for the initial idea, and thereby providing detailing solutions for problems that would be very hard to solve conventionally." (Building Design, January, 1988).

Some of the designs in our portfolio were designed by DLM and manufactured by Marinetime Ltd who have kindly allowed them to be included as examples of our work.
