New look for 2014!

Here at David James Architects we have started the New Year with a number of exciting new projects.

As we closed the door on 2013, we opened a new door on 2014ā€¦literally!Ā  We are proud to have specified and been supplied by Todd Doors a fantastic bespoke door to our offices.Ā  Alan from Todd Doors was most helpful in supplying the frame, door and ironmongery, and meeting our high specifications and standards.Ā  This robust and expertly crafted door has a stylish stainless steel pull handle, and offers a secure locking mechanism.Ā  The slick, stylish design compliments our design ethos.

Glossbrook Builders Ltd, who used the upmost care in fitting the frame into a very tight opening, have meticulously installed the door.Ā  We are extremely proud of our new front door and would like to thank both companies involved for their skilled input. Excellent result!
