Harbour Light, Restronguet

The clients for Harbour Lights wished to demolish and develop their existing property into a high quality dwelling suitable for both their needs and the site. The new design makes best use of the magnificent views available over the Carrick Roads but also now provides a greater sense of dual aspect to allow the residents to enjoy the front garden aspect. The design respects the visual amenity for users of the Carrick Roads by breaking up its massing by splitting the roof form with a lowered garden roof terrace that accentuates the main Monterey Cypress tree behind to allow more of it be viewed from the river. The new design delivers a simple and clean aesthetic that blends into the surrounding context with its appropriate scale, design and carefully chosen materials.
