Lyme Regis, Dorset
Morton Scarr (CDMS)

Project Description

This was small 3 dwelling development. Architects Morton Scarr, based in Brighton produced plans for complete renovation of the large existing house. This was split down the middle to create two luxurious semi detached dwellings grand balcony enjoying views east along the West Dorset coastline.

In addition to the renovation, an adjoined pool house was demolished to make space for a timber frame new build. The pool was filled in and piled foundations installed to hold the proposed structure. The new build utilises the mid floor access door to introduce the upside down living arrangement with living space and wrap around balcony on the first floor.

The whole development ties together with the composite decking boardwalk to the rear access doors. The stained larch cladding and vertically boarded details to railings are shared throughout.

Lots of interesting interior design features as well as landscaping to the shared access and front gardens give the development a unique statemented finish.
