We have submitted plans for our client's new build family home on Guernsey's spectacular West Coast.
The design proposes a family home, primarily on a single level, with small level changes to break down the overall perceived mass and stagger the volumes into the topography of the surrounding context.
It offers lifetime enjoyment and accessibility within rational linear forms that settle into the landscape and levels of the site.
Due to the sloping nature of the property, and significant flood risk, the habitable accommodation is located within single storey volumes spanning over a granite plinth that grounds the dwelling and reflects the surrounding coastal palette of rock and shale.
The overall mass is further broken with a complimentary material palette of Guernsey granite, natural lime render and naturally weathered timber.
Planning was submitted in March 2023.
