Salcombe Coastal Houses

Keep Scrolling
Salcombe, Devon
Richard Downer
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.

We engaged van Ellen + Sheryn to come up with a new, inspirational design for our barn, where others had failed. We were delighted with their response, and in their handling of the planning process. Our fantastic home is testament to their sympathetic design approach.
