With a prime waterside location on Salterns Way, Lilliput, Poole this striking modern house has a very clear geometric concept.

Replacing an existing traditional house, this five bed contemporary home overlooks Blue Lagoon in Poole Harbour. This property affords spectacular west facing sunset views and the striking form of the building enhances the shoreline.

Dark grey render accentuates the bold zig zag theme with white render additions set back. The zig zag concept continues on plan with each floor stepping back to accommodate irregular balconies.

This iconic design has set a precedent locally with nearby houses mimicking its aesthetics.
