Reading the Plot

TRANSFORMING A TRICKY PLOT WITH A HOUSE THAT'S DESIGNED TO FIT. 

Starting off as a large garden plot with beautiful views across the water, this site in St Just in Roseland was endless with possibilities.

 

THE BRIEF

We were tasked with designing a large, three-bedroom property that would take advantage of the views and fit snugly into an awkward and steeply sloped plot. Once approved we worked very closely with our client, who was looking for her perfect plot to build her dream home. With Jane's very clear vision and a few changes to the initial design,  she knew it was going to be right for her family.   

  

THE INTERPRETATION

By digging down and adding retaining walls we were able to design a unique dwelling, with an open plan living and dining space at the top to take advantage of those views.
 
The property was cranked to enhance the views as well as retaining the privacy of neighbouring residents. And the height was aligned with the existing bungalow on the plot to ensure it was in keeping with the surrounding area.
 
Modelling the plans on our 3D Virtual Reality software allowed Jane to step into her new virtual home – being able to physically walk around the as-yet built property enabled her to visualise and have a valuable input into the design of their dream home. We were able to show Jane round and demonstrate the amazing views by linking our software up to Google Earth, enabling some changes to take place before the build started in earnest.

 

THE OUTCOME

Entering at the top floor level you walk into the spacious and airy kitchen, living, dining and office space. There’s a separate living room and one bedroom on this floor then it’s down to three more bedrooms, with doors opening out onto a decked and landscaped patio space. 

The master bedroom has its own dressing room and ensuite bathroom and there’s a family bathroom and laundry space submerged underground, too. Everything has been finished to Jane's very high standard in what is truly a stunning family home.
