Our brief was to design three detached homes on a parcel of land in the west Cornwall village of Botallack.
The hamlet lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Mining World Heritage Site, and was used extensively as a filming location for BBC1’s Poldark.
Flanked by houses to the north and west, the site lent itself to infill residential development. The traditional, high quality design sits contentedly within the context of the surrounding area. Natural stone frontages, combined with stone-clad and painted render elevations, coupled with the use of natural slate roofs and painted timber windows, complements the indigenous housing.
The layout and orientation provides spacious plots and mitigates their visual impact, and its scale and design makes effective and efficient use of the land.
Planning permission was granted by Cornwall Council in November 2016.
