Studio 1 Architects realised this contemporary new build four bedroom home overlooking Woolacombe Bay in North Devon. The client had purchased a restricted access plot of land, chosen for its breath taking sea views perched on a steeply sloping Devonshire hillside. This exposed, yet stunning location, along with planning restrictions influenced the form which evolved into a single storey building that nestled into the sites gradient.
Externally the building is clad in Zwarthout. Vertical cladding strips give a striking textual aesthetic that nestles into its context with a sophisticated yet rustic confidence.
Internally the building makes sense of the contoured site with the creation of three flowing terraced levels dropping down the hillside, reflecting the surrounding landscape.
