With a new build property, you have the opportunity to create the home of your dreams from the foundations up, tailoring every space and every feature of the precise needs of you and your family. Designing a new build home gives you complete freedom to create a beautiful and truly unique living space. However, a new build property is also an ambitious endeavour, requiring careful budgeting and cost control and professional design support to see you through the planning and construction process.


We understand that this will not have been a quick decision and precluded by years of dreaming, planning and saving. Because of that, DS Squared Architects offer all the support you need to realise your dreams of building your own home.

Each home is designed around the lifestyle and preferences of the client, combining modern design methods with sustainable, energy efficient construction and lightweight, eco-friendly materials.

We work with a range of bold, contemporary, and traditional designs, making full use of space and natural light to design you an unforgettable home to laugh, live, work, and thrive in.

Have a look at our portfolio page for a few examples of homes we have designed for customers – we can’t wait to chat with you about your ideas for your home.



This is an exciting time to embark on building a new home, and there are a range of alternative construction methods now available that are not only more sustainable than older techniques, but can also save you valuable time and money. We can investigate these alternative construction methods on your behalf and advise you on the best options for you in terms of design, value, and site suitability.



Whatever stage of the journey you are at, whether you are just considering a new build for the first time, or already have some plans in place, we can assist you at any stage of the development to ensure you get the most from your budget and complete your project successfully.

DS Squared Architects are a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Chartered Practice with extensive experience building new build homes for individual homeowners and residential property developers in and around Greater London.
