Show homes are a predominant sales tool for developers and form a fundamental element of the decision making process for the potential purchasers. Designing and delivering show homes since 2009, the Dapa team is highly experienced in creating show homes that enhance the brand and ethos of the development whilst maximising the customer experience by offering an aspirational vision of the lifestyle on offer.
With influences from all over the world and an in-house design team with vast and varied experiences, combined with extensive knowledge of current interior trends, a Dapa show home is distinctive in its creativity, practicality and suitability for the space in which it occupies.
As the late great Steve Jobs said “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works”
We understand the importance of a marketing suite that is both welcoming and professional. Our approach is that the design is required to deliver on two levels. The first is to introduce buyers to the development, giving them an understanding of the lifestyle on offer in an environment where they feel comfortable. The second is ultimately to provide practical solutions to enable the selling process to be as smooth as possible.
From initial concept through to installation we can be involved in the entire process through regular meetings with the sales, marketing, technical and build teams. This is to ensure that every inch of the marketing suite design is aspirational, professional and functional.
Our marketing suites are where residential and commercial design dovetails to great effect.
We have worked closely with Dapa for several years delivering marketing suites across London. Dapa have been an integral part of the team, not only creating the interior but working in partnership with our branding, sales, marketing, build and technical teams. Dapa understand the key elements of each individual development brand and bring this to life in the marketing suite through a carefully considered approach. The huge success of our marketing suites is a testament to the understanding Dapa have of our brand, our developments and our customers.

The residents facilities play a key role in the overall experience within a development. Therefore the quality and usability of the interior is paramount. Understanding the emotional connection each customer has with the interior gives Dapa the ability to create bright, colourful and desirable spaces for people to enjoy.
The interior for each area, whether it be somewhere to eat, relax, learn or socialise, is tailor made to the architecture and function of the space and offers a variety of options in seating and function to suit the varying needs of the user.

At Dapa we employ an in-house team of experienced designers who can work alongside our clients creating the full internal specification at their development.
This includes the M&E, internal layout, electrical points, woodwork and metalwork styles and finishes, flooring, tiling and kitchen and bathroom finishes. The collaboration between designer and developer results in award-winning homes.
Our Grade II listed Watermill Development is one of the most exciting and challenging projects that we have undertaken so we appointed Dapa to create the full internal specification to ensure it was as stunning and unique as the building itself. We worked hand in hand with Dapa over a number of months carefully selecting our flooring, glazing, wall finishes, metalwork detail, kitchens and bathrooms. It is imperative to the Oakford team that our specification reflects the quality that our discerning purchases demand and working with Dapa has ensured that we have delivered at every level.
