DMS multi-family housing experience includes affordable housing, mixed income and market rate projects. DMS has worked with funding agencies such as MassHousing, DHCD, the City of Boston’s DND and HUD and we have experience with Workforce housing projects in New Hampshire. We also have experience with the renovation of occupied, affordable apartment buildings utilizing LIHTC and/or historic tax credits.

DMS commercial experience includes capital needs assessments and feasibility studies, code compliance and review for office build-outs.  Commercial project experience ranges in scope from restaurant renovations and hair salons, to build-out of medical offices and corporate offices.

DMS interior design experience includes standalone services for residential and commercial projects. Many of our clients take advantage of having both architecture and interiors in one stop at DMS. Our interior design work includes single-family and multi-family residential projects as well as corporate branding design for commercial projects.

DMS is community minded and has enjoyed working charitably for Boys & Girls Club of America, Habitat for Humanity, and a non-profit Haiti organization. Our goal is to continue to provide pro bono architectural services annually to an organization that is providing housing or services for families in need.

We treat our clients and employees like family and pride ourselves on our customer service, attention to detail and ability to take on projects with challenging design needs and deadlines.
