Project Description

The site of this outstanding new six bedroom luxury waterfront house projects from River Dart’s bank and is situated within South Devon’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Coastal Preservation Area. 

Attention to quality, design, materials and detailing was of paramount importance to harmonise with the site. Materials consist of stone, timber, glass and metal. Detailing is visually minimal and technically precise. The plinth is constructed of local stone to match the quay. This luxury contemporary waterfront house is clad in natural weathered oak shiplap to provide a subtle tone to the façade. This allows it to blend into the woodland landscape backdrop. A copper spandrel panel feature creates a datum around the building and accentuates the floor plate.
