“We have worked with David at DMS Architects for a number of years and rely upon his extensive knowledge and quick response times.

DMS Architects regularly prepare planning and building regulations drawings for many of our various developments, maximizing their potential.

DMS Architects have played an essential part in a number of our successful projects.”

Building regulations drawings were prepared for this ultra contemporary horse shoe shaped, semi subterranean house, and taking the opportunity at looking to enhance the original floor layouts.

The challenges involved detailing the underground retaining walls to ensure they remained water tight whilst providing good levels of thermal insulation.

Setting out of walls was a challenge, given the curved nature of the house, probably more of a challenge for the guys on site!

The roof is a living green roof, whilst the overhangs are finished in zinc. The walls are not only curved but also battered at an angle in render.

The rear of the property is more or less formed of continuous floor to ceiling windows/sliding doors to maximise light and views across the adjacent fields.
