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.

I have no hesitation in recommending van Ellen + Sheryn Architects to any prospective customer. My experience was excellent – great service without fault, and very good value for money. If I need to employ an Architect again I would engage van Ellen + Sheryn without question.

van Ellen + Sheryn offered a flexible and scalable service from initial consultancy, through design and application, and even including project management of the build, according to our needs and budget.

Our project was quite modest in scale, nonetheless the company were thorough and professional in every way, paying great attention to all the details, and showing full understanding of the many regulations, procedures and formalities that had to be observed for planning and building compliance.

Van Ellen + Sheryn made the entire process very simple and easy to understand, explaining all the steps in plain English, providing valuable advice while interpreting our wishes and needs to deliver a design we were very happy with, and delivering or facilitating the planning applications, engineering drawings, surveys and consultancy with the builders and various other agencies, so that the project ran smoothly, on time and without stress.

Thank you van Ellen + Sheryn!
