DS Squared Architects are a RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Chartered Architectural Practice, providing urban design, building services, and planning consultancy to property developers across the UK. Our property developments are designed to maximise the use of space and natural light within each building, with an elegant simplicity in keeping with the surrounding area and a firm commitment to sustainability.

Whether you are an experienced property developer, a design and build firm working on behalf of a developer, or the owner of a private property portfolio looking to increase the value of your investment, we work with developers to maximise the opportunities of their site whilst appreciating that time frames are often an imperative factor.


Our architectural services balance the requirements of space, the history and needs of the area, and the character of the development to create accessible and functional buildings that enhance the lives of the people who use them.

At the heart of our approach to property developments and refurbishments is environmental sustainability, beauty, and usability, coupled with a solid understanding of planning legislation and how this relates to different development projects.

All solutions are site-specific and tailored around the needs of each customer. Recent projects include:



Our team of RIBA Chartered Architects support property developers in a variety of ways, from helping them visualise a development, to creating technical drawings and plans, to liaising with customers, engineers, and contractors to facilitate a shared developmental vision:

  • Design feasibility studies
  • Advising on site-specific design constraints, such as conservation areas, listed buildings, flood risk areas, tree preservation orders etc
  • Budget and cost analysis
  • Help establish project objectives and achievable outcome
  • Support throughout the planning permission process
  • Site sketches and technical drawings
  • Funding/investment support

Our aim is to help maximise your returns from your development, improving the functionality and market value of your properties, while improving project efficiency and boosting productivity by delivering this within the agreed time frames.
