12 Years With Habitat For Humanity Celebrated

Beverly, MA – DMS Design, LLC, has announced its 12 year anniversary as an architecture and interior design firm. Since 2006, DMS Design has specialized in designing multi-family housing, commercial spaces, office-fit-ups and fire/flood disaster reconstruction projects. To mark this anniversary, the firm will again partner with Habitat for Humanity of the North Shore.

In the past, the DMS Design team has worked on some charitable projects such as the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, a non-profit Haiti relief organization and, more recently, Habitat for Humanity. DMS’s goal is to continue to provide pro-bono architectural services annually to organizations that are providing housing or services to families in need.

Dan Skolski, Managing Principal of DMS Design, said, “DMS has a long history of designing housing. We recognize the vital importance of creating more affordable housing in our area. In 2017 we joined with Habitat for Humanity North Shore on a pro-bono basis in the redevelopment of a site in Hamilton, MA to create two new single-family homes. These homes are located in the Asbury Park Methodist Retreat area. The homes were designed as classic American cottages on the exterior, but are designed for modern life by incorporating universal design for accessibility and by being very energy efficient. We are proud of our work in the single-family, multifamily, affordable, and senior housing markets and, as we hit our 12 year anniversary, we are proud to announce that we are again partnering with Habitat for Humanity North Shore, this time to design a duplex in Gloucester, MA.”

Donald Preston, President of Habitat for Humanity North Shore commented on the design and commitment of Dan Skolski and his team at DMS Design, “When we reached out to DMS for some help on our Hamilton project we had the challenge of designing two homes that would be identical yet distinctive from each other while blending into the neighborhood, Dan Skolski came through with a great design that won over the neighbors and met the Habitat goal of being energy efficient and having a fully accessible first floor.”
