Latest Dot News


We here at Dot. are slightly embarrassed as we haven’t filled you in for such a long time, so apologies and here goes – to make it easy, we have headed the news this time. Oh, and a very belated Happy New Year – here’s to 2010!

ExtensionArchitecture – Since we last chatted we have seen a steady flow of instructions, submissions and approvals. We managed to get the approval for the very contemporary extension along Harland Road, Bournemouth, which is currently in the early stages of construction and we will keep you informed with its progress. Other approvals include more domestic extensions and conversions, including a period summer house in Cassel Avenue, Poole.

Weymouth SeafrontWe have also just completed our detailed appraisal for two contemporary beach hut cafes on Weymouth Seafront. This is a very exciting scheme and we are now in the process of waiting to see if our client has put forward the winning tender package, so fingers crossed! Our design response was to create a clear juxtaposition between Weymouth’s Georgian past and the more contemporary revival that is apparent in the town. The ‘pods’ (which we know is a bit of a buzz word –but we don’t care!) are to be completely shut off at night, and the introduction of lit chimneys give them a sense of location, and act as a beacon along the front. Presentation style pays homage to the 50s style seaside postcards, and is a very proud nod to the great British beach holiday, which is making a very exciting revival.

Graphics, Websites and the like. – Dot. graphics are steadily moving forward, we are pleased to see continued instructions for our watercolour work at Poundbury.
