Planning Submission for Contemporary Farm House
Posted by Corin Morton - 21 June 2017

CDMS Architects has recently submitted its design for a new agricultural workers’ dwelling for detailed planning permission. The project is for a beef farmer client who has been establishing their farming business over a period of three years and is now looking to obtain consent for a permanent dwelling to support the business. The site, located in Wiltshire, sits on the edge of a valley with far reaching views to the east and west – this has influenced the cranked form of the property. The design is for a house combined with a farm office and facilities, arranged over two floors and partially submerged into the landscape. Living, dining and kitchen spaces are located on the upper entrance floor with the farm facilities, with bedrooms located on the lower floor. The house features a mono-pitched anthracite zinc roof, and is clad using a mixture of vertical western red cedar and anthracite zinc panels.


The Beginning of Works at New Park Road
Posted by Callum Graham - 23 May 2017

Works are well underway on our mixed use development in South London, as demolition is nearing completion. Planning permission was secured by CDMS Architects in late 2016 and the scheme comprises of a series of 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments, a mews house and two retail units at street level. We are working closely with the same team involved in our successful Palace Road project to deliver another high-end result. Expect to see more updates as the construction continues throughout the year.

Fabrica Gallery Extension - Completed Pictures
Posted by Tom Wainewright - 20 December 2016

Fabrica is a contemporary visual arts gallery located in a Grade II Listed former church in the heart of Brighton. CDMS Architects was appointed to design an extension to provide additional office space within a small disused yard at the rear of the property. The site was landlocked by an adjacent goods yard, with no access available except via the building itself. The new extension is located over three floors, providing a store room at ground floor and two floors of open plan office above. The extension is designed as a ‘floating’ box, separated from the existing building and the flint boundary wall of the goods yard by frameless glazing and clad with dark grey cement panels. More photos to be uploaded to the website soon!
