David Joy – Architect

David Joy studied at Magdalene College Cambridge from 1973-1976 and 1977-1979 with a year’s training in London at K C White and Partners working mainly on ecclesiastical buildings. A further year was spent with Dixon Haryett Partnership in St Neots working in the housing sector before qualifying in 1980.

After qualifying he worked for a further six years with Dixon del Pozzo, the successors of Dixon Haryett Partnership, principally on private and public housing with some involvement in office and retail projects.

In 1986 he left Dixon del Pozzo to set up his own practice, David Joy Architects, in Cambridge and has since then established a workload which involves not only housing projects of varying size but also office, health-care, Church and College buildings.
