Our clients needed an architect in Bigbury on Sea, Devon to provide them with a Full Architectural Service for their New build flats and maisonettes.

Two 1960’s bungalows have been demolished to make way for 4 new contemporary houses on a spectacular site, overlooking Burgh Island. The two storey houses are finished in western red cedar, white render and reflective glass mosaic tiles. Full height glazing to the living rooms maximize the sea views with each unit boasting a large, raised private terrace.

South Hams District Council approved the planning application without going to local Committee.

The project was completed in 2010 and received a nomination for the 2010 LABC Building Excellence Award.

We engaged van Ellen & Sheryn in 2013 to assist with the design of and planning for a new build house in Totnes, Devon which my family and I now very happily live in. We worked mostly with Eilir Sheryn who showed enthusiasm, skill and experience in helping us navigate our way through the project. In particular he was willing and able to follow our brief in respect of design and budget which, in our experience, not every architect will do.

All of the staff at the firm are personable and professional and we would not hesitate to recommend them ( we have on two occasions ) and we are in fact currently discussing a new project with Eilir.

Upon completion our house was featured in Homebuilding & Renovating magazine and will also appear the TV series ” Building the Dream ” sometime in 2016……….testament to a job well done.
