Our Mission

TO CELEBRATE THE POWER OF ALL THINGS SMALL

DHD is dedicated to celebrate the little things. Big ideas grow from the tiniest of seeds nurtured with the best of intentions. Architects usually study projects from different angles and at different scales to gain new perspectives that can be applied to real life. Small-scale building, whether it’s a dollhouse, playhouse, doghouse, tea house, or a compact living space, makes you put careful thought into the design qualities and placement of things, and can be an effective tool for creating change.

TO EXPLORE NEW AND BETTER WAYS OF LIVING

DHD creates a community where we can question, explore, share, and dream different ways we can live. The world has a never-ending richness of cultures, perspectives, and dialogues that we can delve into through the shared microcosm of miniatures. To have such a community where people of all ages, sexes, religions, and cultures are welcome to enrich each others lives is a simple yet profoundly wonderful thing.

TO SUPPORT THE IMPORTANCE OF LIVING A CREATIVE LIFE

DHD makes a stand for the importance of living a creative life as a valued aspect of human existence. We live in a world where the Arts and Crafts are often not supported or encouraged. The Arts celebrate our humanity through its beauty and its profundity by communicating, enriching, and broadening our consciousness. It is both valid and necessary for our evolution. By combining the curiosities and rigors of art, architecture, and design with the childlike element of play, we can bring back creativity into everyday life and into our homes.

TO INSPIRE LIFELONG LEARNING

DHD nurtures a life of learning new things and understands that education is a lifelong pursuit. Learning should be approached with an ageless, childlike wonderment, where the journey is the enjoyment over the goal. Never stop learning or sharing.
