Founded in 2009 by Jonathan Dallas, David Pierce and Juliet Quintero, Dallas–Pierce–Quintero is an award-winning art and architecture studio based in London. The studio works at a broad range of scales – from furniture, public art, architecture and consultation to the public realm.

The studio’s work is highly site-specific, exploring places, spaces and engaging the people that inhabit them through open dialogue. Making and materials are also at the heart of the studio’s projects, which along with its iterative approach to design, produces both beautiful and unexpected results.

Dallas–Pierce–Quintero was runner up in RIBA London’s Emerging Practice award 2015.
