12th May 2014, Cornwall: Devon-based Contractors, JE Stacey & Co Ltd have started construction of six innovative new beach cottages at Widemouth Bay, Bude, in north Cornwall for Exeter Property developers Grenadier Estates.
The unique £3million Atlantic View scheme, which stands on the site of a redundant holiday complex and on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, will blend sensitively into the rural, wild heathland landscape of the coastal area.
Mike Dummer, Director of Grenadier Estates, said: “Atlantic View will transform the existing Atlantic View Bungalows site which has been a blight on this wonderful landscape. We’re replacing poorly insulated, tired bungalows with six contemporary three-bedroomed beach cottages that benefit from a number of sustainable technologies.
“We are confident the site will enhance the area and attract tourists who want to enjoy some of the best views in north Cornwall, all year round.”
Architect practice The Bazeley Partnership has cleverly incorporated renewable solutions into the design, including solar thermal panels, air source heat pumps and a Green Roof System. The green roofing, which will be planted with sea thrift, (a common local flowering plant native to the north coast), and other indigenous plants, will reduce energy use as well as help to blend the buildings into the existing landscape.
Martin Back, Lead Architect and Director of The Bazeley Partnership commented: “Sustainable design is essential to the development of new properties in our region. The Atlantic View project is an exciting blend of contemporary design and renewable technologies that promote energy efficiency. The use of natural, local-sourced materials will allow the beach cottages to integrate visually and responsibly into the landscape supporting the development of a new approach to the design of property on the northCornwallcoast.”
The design of the stunning new cottages features organic forms in natural materials such as stone and timber. These are sympathetic to the surrounding the landscape and will enhance the rural character of the area. The buildings will also cut into the natural elevation of the site nearer the road, in order to minimise the visual impact of the development. The innovative construction work will be carried out by Holsworthy building contractors JE Stacey & Co. Ltd.
John Addicott, Director of JE Stacey & Co. Ltd said: “We are delighted to have been appointed as main contractor for the construction of these innovative dwellings on this important site, and we look forward to working with the project team in the delivery of this prestigious project.”
The first phase of the development is due to be completed by Summer 2015.
