Brentford Lock West

Phase 2 of Brentford Lock West is part of a competition winning master plan delivered by Riches Hawley Mikhail Architects and in collaboration with Karakusevic Carsen and Duggan Morris Architects, consisting of various plots. Our plot offers 27 homes and a commercial unit for rent. The client’s requirements for this scheme were to transform a wasted site into a sensitive and elegant mixed tenure development, creating a new active edge for the waterside that has lacked definition for 40 years.

East London House

This extraordinary grade II listed residence is set in a beautifully preserved Georgian area of East London. In reworking the whole house, together with its extensive rear garden, it has been transformed into a modern family home.

Stockwell Park Road

Significantly damaged during the blitz, this mid-19th Century Grade II listed building had been extensively rebuilt and unsympathetically extended post war. Our brief was to provide more headroom in the basement and to make it connect more directly with the wide rear garden. As well as the usual brief of more useable space and light, DMA have looked to give a new cohesion, to the house. We soot washed the rear façade of post-war bricks to emulate the London stocks next door. Spatially, we intro

Tradegar Square

Working closely with Tower Hamlets Conservation team, we rebuilt the C20th closet wing of this Grade 2 listed house in timber and glass, carefully providing long views through to the garden from the entrance hall. The garden was terraced down to give level access out from a new family room, which is roofed in one huge sheet of glass. A secret gate between the neighbouring gardens gives children and adults free reign between houses.
