Text description provided by the architects.

On a prominent location next to the coastal path, this 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 centre stage when viewed from the sea.

The house is positioned to face two ways: with views out across the harbour 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.
