Project Description

Cove Cottage

Client: Private
Value: Undisclosed
Location: St. Loy Penzance

Cove Cottage was a small barn, originally used as an apple store, which was situated almost on the beach at St.loy near Lamorna. The brief from the client was for a traditionally styled Cornish barn conversion to create a min. of two bedrooms but to afford greater space. The allowance for natural light and views have been maximised to help create the feeling of large living spaces to reflect the seascape qualities of the site. Due to the mass of the two foot thick walls throughout the client has found that they have hardly needed to heat the property except on the very coldest of days. Since the original conversion we have added a sizeable single storey day room extension to provide light and space while utilising the southerly aspect towards the sea. Recently the building featured on the front cover of Build IT magazine.
