Hayes Davidson

We are a 100% Employee Owned studio based in Paddington, London with a team from a variety of creative backgrounds, from architecture and photography to interior design and animation.

Development is key to our values; therefore we run weekly seminars, attend workshops, talks and events in architecture, technology and engagement, and invest in internship and mentoring programmes for our team.

Our focus is both internal and external. We have a dedicated innovations team to ensure we are using the latest technology, and give back to the community through a variety of initiatives.
