Burgh Island Causeway
Our clients needed an architect in Bigbury on Sea, Devon to provide them with a full design service for their structural and cosmetic refurbishment of the apartment building, including new balcony structures to the seaward facing elevation..
Constructed in the 1990’s, these apartments required considerable maintenance and upgrading to secure their continued use and lifespan. Areas of the timber balconies showed signs of considerable deterioration, and the client’s brief was to remove these and replace them with new, contemporary structures.
Durability was key to the design, with marine grade finished steel, composite timber cladding finishes, glass and stainless steel fixings used. The natural slate roof was replaced with composite slate, that allows low-pitched roof surfaces and provides long-term warranty protection. Each apartment now enjoys panoramic views of burgh island and the Bigbury coastline. Construction was completed in 2017.
We have been clients of van Ellen + Sheryn since their early days and have always found them a pleasure to work with. We are still with van Ellen + Sheryn partly because they are excellent architects but also because we get a highly personalised service. We are consistently looked after by the right person and our requests are dealt with swiftly.
