Completion of the Upside Down House
Posted by James Patterson - 23 April 2015

Our renovation of a 1950’s detached property in Balcombe, West Sussex is now complete. The finished building includes a large frameless glass balcony to the rear, a single storey extension to the front and the re-planning of the existing internal layouts, modernising the house to meet the owners requirements.

Using large glass panels and delicate timbers to soften the facade, the contemporary extension to the front has already become very popular amongst the local residents in what is a very sensitive rural setting. We wish the owners a happy future in their new home.

Peninsular House, Dublin
Posted by George Gunton - 5 January 2015

CDMS Architects has been appointed to design a new build contemporary family home on the Howth Peninsular, near Dublin.

The hillside site has spectacular multi aspect views overlooking Dublin Bay and the Irish Sea. The project involves the demolition of an existing 1960s bungalow and moving the accommodation higher on the site to ensure the new spaces take maximum advantage of the views.

The concept for this design is driven by views, and the design is a product of the house’s immediate environment. The building layout and form has been generated entirely by the angle of views out across Dublin Bay, to Gleneagry and towards Baily Lighthouse from the ideal vantage point on the site.
