David James Architects & Partners are a multi award-winning practice with experience in both contemporary and traditional styles, with our projects covering a wide range of disciplines. We offer a full architectural package, from the initial concept through to building completion. Each project is approached with enthusiasm and devotion and we specialise in providing sympathetic and thoughtful design solutions that are tailored to each unique site. Our featured project is a contemporary luxury four bedroom residence, set in a private peaceful setting adjoining the renowned Parkstone Golf Course, in Poole. Extensive glazing floods the open-plan double height volume living areas and extends the boundaries of space, both inside the house and within the environment. Originally a 1970’s two storey house, we extensively remodelled and extended the existing building to create a house that embraces the setting of the site whilst floating above the landscape. The architectural language is crisp and clean with a layout that flows for modern living. The three-dimensional form of the internal and external spaces maximise light, space and views. The house boasts three levels, with a spectacular entertainment terrace, and frameless glass balconies that overlook the stunning, elevated views of the surrounding golf course. DAJ undertook the design and planning, technical design, interior design and project management for this site.
