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.
You don’t think you need an architect until you hit problems (especially awkward planners) then the experience, insight and professionalism of van Ellen and Sheryn is priceless.
