Our clients needed an architect in St Austell, Cornwall to provide them with a Full Architectural Service for their 7 new seafront dwellings.

This site is located just below the Duporth Apartments scheme, owned by the same developer. We are proposing a series of 7 contemporary, detached dwellings that all face towards the sea in an elevated location. The upside-down configuration has a vaulted, first floor living space with a full width external balcony.

The design draws from traditional boathouse design, whilst the generous, overhanging roof and reveals provide solar shading and privacy from the adjoining units.

We hope to submit a planning application in the near future.

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.
