Salcombe architects

Located just off the beach of North Sands at the mouth of the Salcombe estuary. We are developing plans for a new family home to replace an existing house.

Through a considered design and materials selection and construction approach and an economical operational energy design supported by use of renewable technologies, we have demonstrated that the new house will result in substantial reduction in whole life carbon emissions over the existing house our new design will replace.

Highlights of the site include the sheltered front garden, predominantly laid to lawn with individual specimen palm trees, the brilliantly engineered, terraced waterfront gardens – reminiscent of Italy’s dazzling Amalfi coastline – which are dotted with water features and plant collections sourced from nearby nurseries to take advantage of Salcombe’s Mediterranean micro-climate.
