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.
Van Ellen + Sheryn have a consistent and thorough approach to the design of individual properties as well as place making. The projects we have undertaken with them have expertly balanced our brief with relevant contemporary design that is highly marketable. Their design lead approach, along with excellent interpersonal skills, pays dividends when presenting proposals to both Local Authorities and the public at consultation events.
