Salcombe Coastal Houses
Our clients needed an architect in Salcombe, Devon to provide them with a Full Architectural Service for their Design 2 new waterfront houses.
We were approached by the owner who had already achieved a planning permission for two houses on this impressive, but sensitive site, overlooking the waterfront in Salcombe. We were appointed to redesign the appearance of the building, along with preparing a detail set of Building regulations and Construction drawings.
The cantilevered first floor blocks are clad in horizontal slate slips of differing colour, texture and depth. Their collective appearance mimics the shimmering qualities of the ocean, and glimmering when wet. Within the slate surrounds sit delicate timber screens than provide an element of privacy, contrast and shade.
The submission was praised by South Hams planning authority and approval was given in 2011. Building regulations plan sign off was also achieved later in the year.
In 2013 I built a new home for my family in Totnes. This was based on plans and design produced by Eilir Sheryn. He assisted me throughout the design, planning and build process and I would commend him to anyone with a building project in mind. I found his genuine interest and willingness to help in all aspects of the project to be especially helpful along with other members of the VES team all of whom who I found to be both professional and personable.
