DRY Ltd was founded in 2006 by merging three established practices. The partners Oliver Empson-Ridler and Louise Yates have now developed DRY Architects into an established practice specialising in the high end residential market as well as general housing and commercial projects.


Once based in Holland Park and Hampshire we have moved London base to Fitzrovia, our main areas of activity are central London with projects also completed in the home counties and Switzerland.
