About the project

Our Southampton office were commissioned to design a new contemporary house on a cliff top location with panoramic views across Torbay. 

The surrounding buildings are large Victorian Villas made with local stone and white render.  Care has been taken to design a modern building that exploits the exceptional views, whilst using a similar palette of materials and building form to help integrate the development into the surrounding context.  The scheme includes a large glazed living room and lookout which makes the most of the panoramic views.  The house is split level and provides the client with a large five bedroom house.

Project Value: £780,000 / Client: Private / Stage: Completed summer 2016
