The site - an uninspiring 1960's bungallow. Location - Trebetherick, a stones throw from the ever popular Rock North Cornwall, with 180 degree views over the Camel Estuary. Tight planning restrictions limited the height and frontage of this replacement dwelling which although modest from the road, opens up to a light, spacious and substantial split level property built into an extensively relandscaped plot to maximise upon the views available. A contemporary application of a simple pallette of vernacular materials has resulted in a property that now has a more integrated relationship with its dramatic context. Its new owners have returned to ALA to further extend the property, construction works for which are well under way and due for completion in the new year.
