DMA Architects has found that moving their office to Cockatoo Island in 2011 has provided many positive changes to their work.
The difference from a previous off-the-suburban-street situation onto a carless, exceptionally beautiful island in Sydney Harbour has provided an ideal working environment, one which minimises distractions and interruptions and maximises focus and inspiration.
The firm of DMA Architects was formed in January 1999. Daniel Ma, the principal of DMA Architects, has been in practise for over 40 years and has worked extensively overseas in Asia and London.
DMA Architects’ projects include educational buildings, Aboriginal Housing, an extensive range of residential work and minor commercial work. The educational work comprises public and secondary schools, TAFE colleges and the College of Fine Arts (the last done by Smith Pratt and Ma). The residential work includes a number of public and Aboriginal housing projects as well as many private dwellings. The commercial work includes restaurants, cafes, shops, hotels and industrial buildings.
