Zinc House
Lymington, Hampshire
Modern coastline home with an emphasis on accessibility

This remarkable Hampshire home overlooks Christchurch Bay and responds to a brief centred around modernity and ease of access, enhancing the lives and wellbeing of its owners.


To capitalise on the inspiring ocean views, the open plan living and dining areas are located on the home’s first floor. Extensive glazing, including a framed feature window to the west, ensures the spaces are flooded with natural light and provides a constant connection to the dramatic and ever-changing seascape.

A glazed balustrade acts as a sociable link between upstairs and downstairs, allowing for conversation and interaction throughout the whole home. A striking exposed lift, ordered bespoke from Austria, runs vertically through the double height hallway and living room, allowing for ease of access for those with impaired mobility and acting as one of the home’s most noteworthy focal points. At ground level, a warming sunroom opens onto a charming front garden offering a secluded outdoor courtyard.


All walls are heavily insulated, whilst an air source heat pump and ventilation and heat recovery system ensure energy efficiency.
