Sea View House


The white painted Douglas fir timber frame of this beautiful house in Cornwall, creates a stunning interior effect.


This has been combined with large folding doors facing the sea views.

A contemporary finish has been achieved with low-pitch metal roofing and areas of moss-sedum roofing to minimise the visual impact of the building when viewed from the road above.

Cedar cladding is left untreated to weather naturally.

The house is entered from the higher level and a generous central atrium space reveals the white interior and views down to the lower level of the house and the sea views beyond.

The interior layout is effectively an upside-down house with bedrooms on the first floor and the open plan living spaces on the lower level opening out onto the terrace.
