Dipesh Shah

Principal + Senior Architect

Dipesh first fell into architecture by chance and has since had the conviction he had found his true calling. He started his professional career with a small practice moving on to larger firms.

Kate logue


Kate is creative and thoughtful architect from Scotland. She Studied at Newcastle University but has practiced in both Scotland and Ireland before moving to London in 2012. She has over 12 years of experience, working across a range of projects from Private Housing, healthcare, the Arts and Conservation.


Basement Extension

Basement Extension



The project involved a new basement that extended under the existing property and under the garden. The existing property was a substantial five bedroom residential property and the 130msqu new basement included a media room, en-suite, shower room with wc, utility, storage room.

Developer Project


Barnet, London


Clients approached DS Squared Architects with the initial intent to demolish these two large Victorian semi-detached homes and erect a mid-sized flatted development in its place. As the brief was developed, it became apparent that it would be more financially beneficial to the client to convert the existing property instead. 



My overall experience with DS Squared has been brilliant. I got in touch with them regarding refurbishment work (rear, garage and loft conversion) which was promptly dealt with. Right from the beginning, DS Squared helped us with a detailed step by step plan about the process to get a better understanding of the project.

In addition to this, the 3D walkthrough (video/images) really helped us visualise the layout and get a proper understanding of the space. The quality of the video/images is amazing and I will highly recommend them.

If you are looking at honest, prompt and professional service, DS Squared Architects is the one!!

Having worked with DS Squared on multiple properties, they are my go-to architects. Their designs are innovative and they advise only to benefit the overall project. The service provided has always been at the highest level and cannot be competed with. They provided a full 360’ service, supporting with the designs, negotiating planning approvals, negotiating tenders, overseeing and delivering the final project to the highest standard. I highly recommend their services to anyone looking for quality architects.

- Atul Shah

Dipesh worked on a very ambitious project with us from start to completion.

The project entailed procuring planning permission for a new build, the demolition of an existing house in a private gated community and the building of a new home with added basement area and an indoor pool and full spa facilities.
We highly recommend him for any challenging jobs.
He is patient, honest and trustworthy . He puts in more dedication and hard work than anyone we know. He is personable and we still take his advice on home related problems.

Not only is he our architect, he remains a good friend to this day.

We will definitely appoint DS Squared for any future project that we might embark upon.

- Rekha Mirchandani

Dipesh was always approachable , responsive and supportive with our build. We were able to problem solve together and guide us to practical ways to achieve our design ideas and even better them to get the most of the space we had to work with. Would recommend.

- Sejal Shah

I was in need of a good Architect. I spent many days thoroughly researching before deciding on Kate Logue. It was a very good choice. Kate Logue secured planning permission to demolish my property and build 3 X E bedroom houses. I was very impressed with the standard of service from start to finish. Kate Logue was professional, flexible and easy to work with. I highly recommend Kate Logue.

- Marlene Turner

Great service from design, planning application, through to build and post build customer service. I would highly recommend DS Squared.

- Ed Shah

Great architects. Even better service.
