The clients approached us with a small, dated, house on the creek-front at Penpol, which also was suffering from mundic block
The brief was for a replacement dwelling that would be their forever home.
It was an interesting site, full of potential, with a water frontage, but complicated by a public right of way adjacent, and neighbouring properties with potential to overlook the house.
The contemporary dwelling was designed under cover of two mono-pitched roof sections which are to be finished with zinc (creating a butterfly roof effect)
The walls are to be finished in a mix of stone, render timber boarding and zinc cladding to have a varied palette of materials paired with modern construction techniques to achieve a high-performance, modern dwelling
