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 have a consistent and thorough approach to the design of individual properties as well as place making. The projects we have undertaken with them have expertly balanced our brief with relevant contemporary design that is highly marketable. Their design lead approach, along with excellent interpersonal skills, pays dividends when presenting proposals to both Local Authorities and the public at consultation events.
