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.

van Ellen + Sheryn Architects provided a beautiful and sympathetic design package to our listed period home. As well as explaining the limitations we were working within they created wonderful design solutions. They worked on a ground floor rear extension and full refurbishment of the internal space. The house feels spacious, light and well appointed.

We have loads of storage elegantly blended into the space. After 8 years we still love every inch of the house and that’s due to the foresight of Eilir and Freddie understanding the needs of a growing family. They assisted us when the budget started to grow in where the best options were to spend our money. Professional and approachable throughout our project. We would definitely look to work with this architect firm again.
