“Lightness” is a focus of the design, expressed both in the planning and in the considered way that daylight is brought into the interior.
The desire to make everything “as light as possible” is expressed in elements such as “tall and thin” glazing and the finely crafted handrail.
Roof lanterns are used to capture views of the sky and open up the homes to avoid any chance of a gloomy interior.
The mirror-identical homes are lineal in nature, similar to nineteenth-century terrace houses.
Sliding screens in white linen (such as in the bathroom), slatted timber or frosted glass allow spaces to easily be opened up or closed down as required.
Limestone floors, oak joinery, zinc cladding and render were chosen so that surfaces would not need to be painted – important for a home near the ocean.
The dwellings are placed offset from each other to assist with visual and acoustic privacy.
An internal patio acts as a central cut-out, sectioning the homes into two well-balanced parts.
