Further Planning Success
Posted by Chris Scarr - 18 November 2016

We have obtained another planning permission for more new homes in South London. The application for three new detached dwellings in the London Borough of Croydon was approved at the Planning Committee Meeting yesterday evening.

The houses have been individually designed to respond to the challenges on the site with a contemporary take on the existing street scene. With private parking and large amenity spaces, the mix of 4 and 5 bedroom units will provide much needed homes for the area.

Planning has been submitted for a new development of 3 houses in Lyme Regis, Dorset. The proposals involve the substantial refurbishment and upgrade of a large, existing chalet style home and flat, into two 4 bedroom properties, and the construction of a contemporary 5 bedroom family home within the gardens of the same plot. The properties will share panoramic views over Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast. The design of the original chalet style property, and the contemporary home, will be visually tied together, through the use of timber cladding, and balconies that run along the western elevation.

Planning Approval for Contemporary Extension
Posted by Corin Morton - 21 October 2016

CDMS Architects has received planning approval for the refurbishment and extension of an existing property within the Sussex countryside  The design sees the extension of an existing barn with a brick hipped end, alongside a new contemporary extension which includes a frameless glass entrance, open plan kitchen and sitting area, and two bedrooms at first floor. A master suite is located at the lower ground floor, accessing a private sunken garden featuring a reflection pool. The extension is designed to be clad using a larch rainscreen which forms the external finish to both the walls and the roof. This in turn is separated by a white concrete horizontal band which define each floor. The project is due to commence construction in 2017.

End of Summer Flight
Posted by Corin Morton - 30 September 2016

CDMS Architects took a break from the office to take a flight up the recently opened i360 on Brighton & Hove sea front. The attraction, located in front of the historic West Pier, is the tallest moving observation tower in the world with the passenger viewing pod climbing to a height of 138 metres. CDMS had a great time taking in the views across Sussex and were fortunate to visit on day with clear blue skies. Despite being an eyesore during construction, the finished attraction makes for a positive addition to Brighton’s seafront, with the mirrored underside to the pod in particular being a fantastic feature.
