Site and Client Brief

A north facing town block sloping to a small ledge at the waters edge with a great view of the bay. Owner-builders wishing to build four holiday units that are environmentally sustainable and non toxic.

Design Theory

The units needed to be long and narrow to equally access the bay views, with the north slope assisting with solar gain to the higher level southerly rooms. An old shop covered half of the site which was used as a residence while the first two units were built.
