With one of the most dramatic positions on the Kingsbridge Estuary in Salcombe, this rare plot offers a wide site and an intriguing opportunity to utilise a ‘modest’ internal habitable space whilst providing an exceptional connection from internal to generous external viewing platform spaces.
Utilising the existing structure and enhancing an internal swimming pool, additional bedrooms and vast living spaces, this is sure to be the most prestigious of residential accommodation in Salcombe.
Materiality reflect the contextual location of coastline with white render and traditional to modernist architecture evident in surrounding buildings. Transparency and reflectance of glass is used throughout to provide panoramic views of the estuary whilst also reflecting the surrounding land and seascape.
Timber cladding mirrors the mature landscaping of the site, with local rock to the pool and retaining wall structures ensuring the strength of the design’s full integration to its specific site.
