La Serena shortlisted at the 2018 International Design & Architecture Awards…

Planning achieved for striking contemporary bungalow in Canford Cliffs…

DJA has recently achieved planning permission for Excellare, for this contemporary bungalow situated in a beautiful sylvan setting in Canford Cliffs, Poole.

Set in the heart of a wooded area with considerable tree constraints, the dwelling has been sympathetically designed to complement the treed setting with the extensive use of floor to ceiling glazing to lighten the structure and allowing it to reflect the surrounding vegetation. Aluminium frames are lightweight and unobtrusive, with timber cladding and louvres adding texture and interest to the form.

The design appears to float over the landscape, elevated on pilotis thus creating minimum impact to the surrounding area.

Another planning approval…

Another planning approval for a DJA design – we worked closely with Pure Town Planning to secure planning permission for this block of 10 self contained apartments in Poole. The design is of a contemporary nature, within a traditional building envelope, sympathetically designed to respect the character of the surrounding area.
