Boasting an incredible yet highly exposed setting on the South Coast, Waterside is a seaside home reimagined for modern living, with a distinctive contemporary aesthetic.
A key objective was to strike a balance between opening up the home to enjoy the 180-degree ocean views and create a sense of drawing the sea in, whilst also providing calm, cocooning spaces that act as a retreat for the owners. A deep house, layouts have been carefully planned to maximise natural light, particularly on the ground floor which is home to the owner’s artist’s studio.
Natural, deeply textured materials used throughout add a great sense of warmth and intimacy to the spaces, A honey-coloured sandstone wall begins externally and continues inside, drawing the eye to a timber staircase which opens onto the expansive living space overlooking the sea through a vast glazed panel.
Anchoring the building to the site, the materials used will weather gracefully, even against the sometimes-harsh environment of the home’s exposed coastal setting.
