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.
Architecture and building works was something we had not done before and we found Van Ellen and Sheryn easy to work with and very professional, going beyond what was required to make the whole thing straight forward and trouble free.
I wanted to convert an old conservatory into a usable space for all year round use. Van Ellen gave very good initial advice about what options were available to us with regards to the architectural work and costs. Then once we had agreed on a plan were excellent at giving us ideas based on what we thought, but added numerous options of theirs. They then gave us clear drawings of the different options and a smooth transition through the planning permission. They gave us numerous recommended contractors, material ideas, and even helped afterwards when the contractors had more technical questions at no extra cost.
