Our clients needed an architect in Dartmoor, Devon to provide them with a Full Architectural Service for their Replacement dwelling.
A 19th Mining cottage that has seen much alteration and extension over the years, and has now fallen into disrepair. The design is for a replacement dwelling.
The architecture is a contemporary interpretation of the Dartmoor mining vernacular, with a heavy stone plinth and light-weight timber structure above. Kitchen and living areas have been located at first floor to benefit from the increased light penetration and lofted ceiling, with bedroom accommodation at ground floor.
A large chimney stack on the gable end makes reference to the exaggerated verticality of historic mining industry architecture.
Eilir and Ian have been really impressive. They are both very creative, proactive and responsive and were able to obtain planning permission for a contemporary house in Salcombe. We are now progressing with the construction.
