/Whipsiderry looks to create a home that responds to the changing built environment around it and fully enraptures the 'Cornish Modern' aesthetic.
'captivate the setting, the essence of place, the joy of the lifestyle brings and prepare that into a melting pot of development'
A form sculpted out of wanting to maximise the connection with the surrounding landscape, while not impacting on neighbouring views or privacy.
Looking to provide a new strong architectural narrative that was inspired dwellings found along the coast of our clients home countries - Australia and New Zealand.
The proposal provides a highly sustainable modern Cornish beach house to replace a fuel inefficient, uncharacteristic chalet bungalow.
Aside from its exemplary technical sustainable credentials, the building improves and enhances biodiversity. The front and rear landscaped gardens have been designed with local flora and fauna in mind. This is then lifted onto the roof with a wildflower meadow green roof.
/Designed to PassivHaus standards
/Has a highly thermal efficient fabric along with designed in airtightness and MVHR systems.
/The building makes use of the winter sun warming the building with the glazing facing south while limiting its overexposure to direct sun in the summer with overselling roofs and louvred cheeks.
