Architect’s Statement
Dive Architects was founded in 2001 by Ia Hjärre and Andy Nettleton. We believe creative, high quality architecture is the result of a close dialogue with our clients. Realising a project can be a long and demanding process. We see our role to approach every project with energy and enthusiasm, from idea to the final result. We work for a wide range of clients with projects not just in Europe but also in Africa and the Middle East. We have produced a number of award winning schemes and completed projects have attracted much attention from national and international press.

Dive Architects is one of a number of entries recently added to our Directory of Architects and Designers. For modern properties for sale and to let in the UK, visit The Modern House.
