Our clients needed an architect in South Hams, Devon to provide them with a Full exterior and interior design service for their Replacement dwelling.

This is a design for a replacement dwelling on a dramatic coastal location in the South Hams. The large 5 bedroom house has an upside down arrangement with three bedroom located at ground floor level, with the master bedroom suite and living space at first floor.

The design has an expressed timber frame over two stories. Within the framework sits large planes of glass, render and slate, enjoying the dramatic views out to sea. The sculptural butterfly roof ( reminiscent of a seagull on the wing ) floats elegantly over the structure allowing exaggerated floor to ceiling heights at the eaves, no external rainwater goods and a open plan arrangement in the large living space.

We hope to submit a planning application shortly.

We hired van Ellen Sheryn to provide us with a full design service, from concept through to plans and managing the planning process.
We found them to be a great team of smart experienced people who worked together very effectively to provide us with a faultless service. They listened and they worked hard for us. In fact, it’s fair to say that they worked really hard for us, it was impressive. They have a genuine desire to please and we found them real team players.

The result of their efforts made for an application that totally worked for us and our needs, the application pushed the planning boundaries but not so much that the application was refused and made costly, they trod the line perfectly.

I sit writing this in our now completed two story extension, it really is a picture of beauty inside and out. It’s a home design that works for every occasion and we are delighted. So much credit sits squarely on the van Ellen Sheryn’s teams shoulders, we’d recommend and work with them again without hesitation.
