Atelier Ochre is a collaborative and experimental design studio based in South London. Founded by Pauline Dellemotte and Daryl Fitzgerald, the studio builds relationships with ideas, people and spaces to create sensitive architecture and interiors.
We work with and learn from artists and craftsmen to collectively explore, develop and build playful, bespoke and sensory spaces for our clients. Creativity and collaboration are at the heart of our values and Atelier Ochre is about combining honest and natural materials with modern and sustainable building technologies.
"To create empowered and inspired relationships in all spheres, so that collaboration and experimentation can thrive"
