The growing need for improved standards and the increased demand for new residential accommodation, puts both a focus on creating the right urban framework but also an emphasis on getting the best professional teams in place, in order to deliver commercially viable, sustainable solutions.   


studio | dsq has honed our expertise within the residential sector over recent years, having worked collaboratively with a number of renowned investors and developers including: Cairn Homes, Carysfort/Angelo Gordon, Hudson Advisors, Quintain and D|RES Properties along with a selection of Private Clients.  These relationships have helped to provide valuable insight and an understanding of market trends, with our collective team possessing an in-depth knowledge of best practice, across new build, regeneration and renovation projects.


As Architects and Designers, we advise on effective design and engineered solutions, which meet consumer demand and that create properties in which people want to live.  Key factors being size, unit mix, configuration and adaptability in order to achieve a high quality of design and an appropriate standard of accommodation. 


A recent initiative has seen the creation and publication of a Design & Specification Manual, produced in conjunction with D|RES Properties; intended to assist their consultant/contract teams in successfully implementing a suitable level of specification, as part of new build residential developments.  The purpose being to inform the design & cost estimate stage of an overall housing development; ensuring that critical aspects, including both the external and interior specification are considered at an early stage of a project.


studio | dsq’s experience in residential development covers initial consultancy, feasibility & master-planning; through to planning submission, statutory compliance and a full Architectural | Design service, throughout the detailed design & construction/implementation period.
