Island Wall

PROJECT BRIEF

  • Redevelop existing brown field site.
  • Construction of six three bed houses.
  • Buildings to be designed with good environmental standards.

KEY ISSUES

  • Site within conservation area.
  • Exposed seaside location.
  • Restricted eaves and ridge heights.

SOLUTIONS & SUCCESSES

  • Very tight internal planning increased usable floor area.
  • Individual high specification interior design.
  • Buildings raise due to proximity to sea and under croft used for storage.
  • Green oak frame construction enabled off site fabrication and quick on site erection of frame.
  • Internal organisation of space and external elevations make the most of spectacular views.
  • Garden landscaping and planting works with seaside climate and soil conditions.
  • Modern vernacular fits in very well with character and context of the conservation area.
