About this Project

Jon and Lorna dreamed of transforming their tired 1960’s house into a modern and uplifting home. Their main goals were to increase living space and add an additional bedroom with an ensuite. Jon being an electrical engineer also wanted a second garage. Both Jon and Lorna wanted to transform the property into a beautiful modern building.

Before

The Process

James Roberts our in-house Architect produced the proposed plans and the design was unprecedented in the immediate area. Following a rigorous planning process, we successfully gained approval to turn this traditional house into a contemporary modern property.

Modern construction techniques were combined with the highest quality of materials, including composite cladding. This is a low maintenance cladding which would provide excellent protection against the sea air as well as looking visually pleasing. We installed a modern, white silicone render, which again is maintenance free and suitable for properties located near the seafront. There is no requirement for future painting and provides a clean, sharp finish.

The signature of the property was the stunning double-height glazed centre section which poured light onto the stairs, first floor landing and ground floor. This created a wonderful open space, giving the family a gorgeous view of the River Adur.

Great emphasis was placed on constructing Beach Green in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way. With the increasing concerns over CO2 emissions, the main structure was constructed in timber. Timber frame construction has one of the lowest CO2 costs of any other building method. The methods used to harvest, produce and transport the timber are considerably less detrimental to the environment. Building Beach Green in a timber frame allowed us to maximise high levels of thermal insulation.

Results of the Project

Inside Beach Green is just as striking as the outside. The ground floor boasted a further lounge area and luxurious open plan spaces. Family life became generously supported by a new first floor bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and a further garage. The overall result of the project was a stunning modern and environmentally friendly home, which won the admiration of local residents.
