Design inspo for work and home

A few of our projects to help inspire your work and home lives

You’re designing your dream office or home. What does it look like? We’ve compiled a few projects we’ve completed in recent years to give you some design feature ideas and inspiration.

OEM offices

OEM office

A mixture of curved edges and severe corners were used to make the OEM offices in Whetstone, Leicester stand out from their competitors.

DSA was appointed to provide a new inviting entrance to the OEM commercial building and provide a more energy efficient building fabric. The new entrance also allowed for a newly configured open plan office arrangement to the ground floor.

The cladding colours were inspired by the company corporate colours.

Baldwin Extension

Baldwin home

This extension design aimed to modernise what was an outdated, cluttered rear entrance to the house. Skylights open up the kitchen area, and floor to ceiling windows and doors give the feeling of being outside surrounded by nature. The large white patio adds a contemporary feel and tidies up the garden.

This project specifically aimed to promote natural light in order to combat depression. Natural light was seen as a must to help with employee wellbeing.

King Power Stadium

King Power coach’s office

Leicester City FC appointed Design Studio Architects to carry out a number of changes at the club in order to provide facilities which were in line with Premier League standards. The improved manager’s office and player facilities allows for an improved match day experience for all parties. We transformed the players dining room, manager’s office, coach’s room and King Power lounge. Layouts were used to create a professional yet homely feel in each of the areas, and neon LCFC blue lights run through connecting each of the rooms.

Stoughton Drive

Stoughton Drive home

This is a bespoke replacement dwelling in a sought-after area in Leicestershire. The 5000sq ft., six bedroomed property boasts high quality accommodation and was designed to take advantage of the views of the golf course opposite. The scheme’s main constraints involved being in an area with a high water table and numerous mature trees with Tree Preservation Orders (TPO). It also included a number of interesting design features such as corner bi-folding doors with no corner support to create a floating space above, and a feature bespoke staircase among others.
