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 used the van Ellen and Sheryn practice as we had been impressed by a project they had completed on Dartmoor. We worked alongside both Eilir and Ian and both were very approachable, experienced and informal….which we liked.

They listened to our brief and appreciated that we had a budget.

Our project was complicated as we wanted to retain the Georgian frontage of the building and demolish the rear, adding a contemporary barn like structure.

They were always available and professional throughout..It’s reassuring to know they are just down the road should we need advice or clarification during the build process. We would certainly recommend them.
