harbour house

McLean Quinlan 

contemporary handmade house is careful to respect its sensitive Area of ​​Outstanding Natural Beauty location. Designed as a collection of volumes, neat red brick wings are positioned to allow a finely crafted flint façade to take center stage when viewed from the sea. The house is positioned to face two ways: with views out across the harbor to the north and towards an informal courtyard garden to the south.

Traditional materials of flint, brick and timber are used throughout. Internally these textures mark the divide between the separate wings of the house. Inside, the main stair to the west works in conjunction with a narrow, boat-like stair to the east. In the central space; a timber ceiling, full width high-performance glazing and raised external decks, allows the sea view to be enjoyed together with the sun.
