Sundown is a new contemporary home in Widemouth Bay, Cornwall. Our brief for Sundown was to provide the design for a new, modern property to replace the existing dilapidated bungalow that once occupied the site. It was important to ensure the new home fit the height to satisfy planning criteria, and fit the original footprint.
The home includes two-storeys with minimal ridge height through the use of a curved roof profile. This more innovative approach allows for first floor living accommodation with enhanced views.
Sundown’s design has a strong contemporary appearance and adopts a form and materials that relate strongly to its coastal location. Externally, the building boasts a mixture of white render and timber cladding, with aluminium windows and a hardwood front door.
