Derun is an award-winning contemporary design practice exploring design at the intersection of Performance, Technology and Craft. Challenged with the mission to explore and redefine the relationship between form and performance, the office explores methods of informing design through technological means. The design trajectory and ethos of the office is rooted in balancing both the experimental and the visionary with the practical and the pragmatic to achieve the extraordinary.


With over 20 years of collective professional experience the office has established an impressive and diverse portfolio of buildings, facades, infrastructure, interiors, installations, exhibitions, furniture, and product design.




Every day at Derun  Architects, we set off on a journey. A pathway of possibilities that inspires careful exploration. Whose destination is never predetermined, but rather revealed — like the view over the crest of a hill that becomes more clear with every step. And though we choose the road less traveled, it’s never traveled alone. We walk with a trusted partner. Sometimes guiding, sometimes following. Always listening. This is how we embark on every unique project with our clients.  And it’s with this sense of discovery that we inevitably arrive at something wonderful — together.

The fact is, it’s easy to see architecture today in simple terms of square footage, facades and functions. We share your desire to see your building as something more.  As a destination with the power to solve your challenges.  Set the stage.  Evoke emotions. Improve lives. And build community. This is the extra mile we travel with our clients —that’s always worth it in the end.
