Office site visit to recently completed Sandbourne Road

We recently undertook an office visit to Sandbourne Road, a luxurious 5 bedroom family home set on this beautiful bournemouth road close to the cliff top. The house features an indoor swimming pool, gym, sauna, games room, bar and wine cellar, with a large kitchen/ dining/ living area to the ground floor. The front door opens to a double volume entrance hall, with the rear of the house enjoying spectacular uninterrupted views over the sea. Check out the stylish office socks on show!

‘TypeOnesie Day’ at DJA, raising money and awareness of diabetes for JDRF…

For World Diabetes Day David James declared Friday 14th ‘TypeOnesie Day’ at David James Architects! This worthy cause is very close to our hearts as David James’ wife Janet has worked in the Diabetes field for over 10 years, together with a member of staff’s 4 year old son being diagnosed with Type1 diabetes in August this year. We all came to work in our onesies to raise money for this fantastic charity!
The JDRF #TypeOnesie campaign raises awareness of Type 1 Diabetes and money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
