Upside down contemporary living by the sea, ‘on the lookout’ 

Our project on the South Coast is featured in the February 2024 issue of Grand Designs magazine as one of the ‘original projects to inspire your own self-build or renovation’. 

Boasting an incredible yet highly exposed setting, Waterside is a seaside home reimagined for modern living, with a distinctive contemporary aesthetic.

Natural, deeply textured materials used throughout add a great sense of warmth and intimacy to the spaces, whilst sandstone and Siberian larch used externally will weather gracefully, even against the sometimes-harsh environment of the home’s exposed coastal setting. 

Thank you to Grand Designs for featuring Waterside in your ‘Architecture Update’ section.
