Domat Limited

DOMAT is a not-for-profit architectural practice. We work with communities and people who do not normally have access to architects. We believe that everybody is entitled to a good living environment, and that good design should be available at all levels of society. Through the processes of research, design and implementation, we engage with local people to understand the communities involved.
