Project: Greenford Road, Harrow. A residential development for our contractor client. The second phase of development at the site was developed with a new 2-storey building to provide 6 apartments for a social rent through a social housing provider. 6no. car parking spaces and secure cycle storage were provided to the front of the site along with three private gardens for the ground floor units to the rear. Following the Grant of Planning Permission, DMS Architecture worked closely with the contractor and design team to ensure that the various requirements for the project - including Code for Sustainable Homes (Level 3), NHBC technical standards, discharge of Planning Conditions, Lifetime Homes and HCA Design Quality Indicators - were achieved. Value: ÂŁ0.6 million Status: Completed Units: 6 apartments (1 bed)

Project: Adelphi Wharf Phase 1. A residential development for our developer client. The wonderful opportunity for this site was to create the primary riverside destination for Salford. Dramatic building forms and subtle detailing to the brickwork were central to the design proposal, but above all it was the quality of the public realm and the relationship of the building to the River Irwell and ‘The Meadows’ - the public park opposite the site - that will determine the success of ‘Adelphi Wharf’ as a destination. The proposed design focussed on the public spaces; their connectivity, their quality of ‘place’, and the orientation towards the River Irwell and ‘The Meadows’. The scheme consists of three individual ‘fingers’ set perpendicular to the river, which interlink on upper floors and are set around communal landscaped space. Phase 1 will provide 2,900m2 of space comprising 206 apartments, a gymnasium, and on-site parking for 87 vehicles. The development forms a catalyst for the regeneration of Salford’s riverside quarter, connecting the city with previously isolated communities. The architecture is bold yet calm, rational aesthetic utilising traditional brickwork to mimic the mills of the cotton and silk weaving that historically Salford was known for. A reactive cladding ‘Chameleon’ changes with the angle it is viewed from, creating a dynamic experience along the frontage - one that changes throughout the day.

Units: 206 - split mix 1,2, 3 Bed & Townhouses


Project: Weaver Street, Chester. The ‘Townhouses’ at Weaver Street is a small, well-detailed residential terrace on a historical site in the centre of Chester. DMS Architecture were appointed by a developer client in October 2014 with a brief to design 4no. houses on a small, restricted site. The site is within a Conservation Area and has potential archaeological interest. The dual aspect houses had to be carefully designed to respond to the potential overlooking issues from neighbouring houses within the dense city centre context. This led to the concept of stepped back frontages, inverse bay windows and protecting / channelling views. The houses are three storeys in height, partially masked with a two storey form and a mansard roof to articulate the gable whilst creating additional living space, lowering the impact and enabling the creation of expressed, projecting bay windows. The proposal is conceived in traditional red brickwork, with recessed brickwork detailing to create visual interest and compliment its’ surroundings. To the rear, balconies are created to the master bedroom with brickwork detailing to the flank walls. Amenity space is provided to each dwelling in the form of rear gardens - something which for city centre development is a major asset. Cycle and refuse storage areas have also been incorporated. Value: £600,000 Status: Planning Permission Granted Units: 4no. 4-bed townhouses

Project: Woden Street, Salford. The ‘Gateway’ at Woden Street is a mixed-use scheme on a prominent corner site in Salford. DMS Architecture were appointed by a developer client in February 2015 with a brief for circa 40 residential apartments and commercial / retail use at Ground Floor level. This all had to tie into the Local Authority’s masterplan for the area - this site was designated on a ‘Green Corridor’ and a key corner - hence ‘The Gateway’. The concept led to a stepped back frontage and massing, thus allowing a greater public realm on a key corner and expressing the ‘Spoiler’ as a key entrance feature and focal point. The dimensions and restrictions of the site lend themselves to a narrow, linear block. The building is seven storeys in height, with a five-storey parapet to the main frontage (in line with the masterplan) with one or two storeys set back to the rear. The elevations are conceived in traditional red brickwork, however the floor plates are expressed with prominent balconies generating a vertical rhythm - further punctuated by additional recessed balconies. The upper level is clad with ceramic panels, creating a woven pattern to the set back upper level - minimising the visual impact of the scheme on the surrounding area. Value: £6.0 million Status: Planning Permission Granted

Project: Ordsall Lane, Salford. ‘Bridgewater Place’ at Ordsall Lane is a mixed-use scheme on a prominent site in Salford. The scheme was developed through a continuous dialogue with the Local Planning Authority including the North-West Design Review Panel (Places Matter!), which aims to develop high quality design and places to live. Due to the site being surrounded on all sides by roads, a perimeter block development became the early starting point for the concept. This form was broken down to open up views through the massing and to maintain a visual connection and relationship to the streetscape. The finalised design responds to the site context and generates a secluded, private terrace space for the residents at the centre of the proposal. The elevations are conceived in blue brickwork, with expressed framing to the built form. This expression touches the ground in key locations -

Project: Adelphi Wharf 2. The existing site at Adelphi Street in Salford has been the subject of numerous planning applications over the last decade, none of which have been successfully developed. DMS Architecture took on the challenge of preparing a proposal to regenerate the vacant and overgrown site adjacent to the River Irwell with a view to breathing new life into this neglected area on the edge of Salford City Centre. The scheme is being developed in two phases with the overall development comprising of over 500 residential units, commercial space, gymnasium, basement car parking, publicly accessible and private amenity spaces. Phase Two of the development will comprise of 383 apartments within a eight-storey building (plus basement levels) and includes a landscaped, 4m wide riverside walkway adjacent to the River Irwell (fully accessible to the public). Value: ÂŁ40 million Status: On Site Units: 383 - split mix 1,2, 3 Bed & Duplexes

Project: Carver Street, Birmingham. With the perfect combination of contextual modern architecture and stunning interiors, these new build apartments are being constructed to the highest specification and draw on the area’s unique sense of history. Building works started on site in March 2015 and are due to complete midway through 2016, following the Grant of Planning Permission in September 2013 (initial scheme by others). DMS Architecture were appointed by a contractor client in January 2015 to deliver the 61 luxury apartments under a Design & Build contract. Being situated in the heart of a Conservation Area, negotiating closely with the planning department has been essential to enable the delivery of a cost-effective build whilst maintaining the aesthetic requirements dictated by its locale. The site is nestled between neighbouring properties on three sides, creating a complex challenge for the design and construction teams. The site is within Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter, which dates back more than 250 years and is still home to over 500 jewellery businesses. The proposed design complements the surrounding architecture and comprises a four storey building organised around two courtyards. Value: £6.7 million Status: On site Units: 61 - split mix 1,2 & 3 Bed


Project: Bard House, Nottingham. Construction work on the conversion of the existing three- and four-storey buildings in the centre of Nottingham completed in 2013. The project provides 54 self-contained student studios; plus associated communal facilities such as an entertainment lounge, gymnasium, laundry and concierge office. The project included extensive works internally to a Grade II* Listed building on Shakespeare Street including the installation of secondary glazing to the existing retained windows. DMS Architecture worked closely with the contractor client and other consultants following the Grant of Planning Permission in December 2012 (initial scheme by others)to develop a detailed construction package. The project was completed on time, ready for occupation in September 2013. Value: ÂŁ1.5 million Status: Completed Units: 52 self-contained studios, plus communal facilities

Project: East Street, Leeds. East Street was once home to Leeds College of Building in the thriving community close to the heart of Leeds City Centre, and is a sought after area for high end apartments. DMS Architecture was appointed by a developer client in May 2014 for full architectural services for the redevelopment of the site for residential use. Planning was granted in December 2014 to convert the existing building into 39 residential apartments including a two storey modern contemporary rooftop extension and partial demolition of the existing building. The existing façades being retained to East Street and Richmond Street boast original art deco style frontage, which is complemented by the contemporary roof top extension. Close collaboration with the Planning and Conservation Officers at Leeds City Council at the preapplication stage ensured planning permission was granted with few issues. The proposal also includes on site car parking and rooftop amenity spaces. Value: £3.2 million Status: On site
