New Concrete Frame
Posted by Chris Scarr - 11 April 2016

Works have commenced on site at one of our mixed use schemes which we obtained Planning Permission for in 2015.  The scheme consists of a retail unit at ground floor, with 7 high specification apartments above which include private parking, generous accommodation and rear terraces with views that reach across the London skyline.

The concrete frame is scheduled to complete this month, with the project due for completion later this year.


Planning Permission for New Family Home
Posted by George Gunton - 4 April 2016

Designed for the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Pampard House will replace an existing brick built chalet bungalow. The replacement dwelling has been designed to maximise the stunning views to the rear. From the initial conception the design responded to the Chilterns Building Design Guide in order to complement its surroundings and following local materiality studies the house developed into a contemporary interpretation of the guidance.

The internal layout fulfils the key components of the client’s brief for a contemporary family home. The focus of the ground floor is the large open plan kitchen and living space with glazing and external decking orientated towards the key views. This space is also connected to the first floor with a bridged landing overlooking the double height dining area. Other spaces on the ground floor include a snug, a double height entrance hall, guest accommodation and a study. On the first floor are four bedrooms including a master suite with a covered terrace to the rear taking in the views across the hills.

CDMS Architects to Design Beach Café
Posted by Corin Morton - 24 February 2016

CDMS Architects has been selected to design a new beach café and leisure facility for Beach Green in Shoreham-by-Sea.  Working in tandem with developer Wilbos Restaurants, the design will see the demolition and replacement of a line of existing public WCs with a café/restaurant, kiosk for cycle and boat hire, and external seating.  The initial concept designs draw inspiration from the man made landscape of the nearby Shoreham Fort alongside the views over the local nature reserve of Shoreham Beach and the Adur estuary.  The design will be developed in conjunction with input from the Shoreham Beach Neighbourhood Forum, and in partnership with Adur & Worthing Council.

CDMS Architects has obtained planning and listed building consent for the refurbishment of a curtilage listed dwelling in rural Sussex. The current house is in a derelict state, and will undergo complete internal refurbishment, as well as further extensions to each end of the dwelling, and a new two storey extension to the rear. Additionally, a set of existing derelict sheds will be demolished, and a new timber framed annexe constructed in its place, containing guest accommodation and an office with far reaching views over the surrounding countryside.
