River Side House North Devon

It is always lovely when we get called back by a client to undertake further work based on the quality of our initial service. This project was one such instance. 

Here we were called by the client of our successful Eco Farmhouse Refurbishment in Mid Devon. They were moving to North Devon and really wanted to work with us again to create a completely new dwelling. The site for this project is a steep hill side with breath taking views over the river Taw.

In addition to a replacement dwelling, the client also wished to repurpose a large metal clad garage into an annex dwelling for them to live in whilst completing the replacement house. 

For both dwellings, we undertook sun-path analysis to ascertain solar shading options and worked closely with the client to consider natural materials for use within the projects. 

It was with great sadness that the client for this project passed away before we could take these designs further.

On the site already was an existing dwelling, which had been extended in an adhoc manner over the past 30 or 40 years. This project proposed to replace the existing house with a new dwelling that sat more comfortably within the steep topography, whilst maximising connectivity with the surrounding garden and river bank area.
