Coastguards

New build flats and maisonettes

01. The Brief

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

02. Project Detail

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.

04. Client Testimonial

When we started, we weren’t even sure what it was we wanted and it wasn’t until about the ‘Mark VII’ version that we finally felt brave enough to give the go ahead. During this ‘design gestation’ we felt embarrassed at our lack of direction but our indecision was met with patience and guidance until the final layout was agreed…everything was handled with smooth professionalism including the planning process with Dartmoor National Park.
