Scheme name: The Green House
Practice: Stan Bolt
Client: Private House
Photographer: Nigel Rigden 

This is a replacement house on a steely sloping site over the River Yealm, on a site that offers stunning south, east and west views to estuary and countryside. A high-level entrance on to the dining/kitchen mezzanine gives views out and down to the water through a double-height void.

This is the first quality contemporary house to be built in the town and both the client and architect are to be applauded for the their persistence in securing planning consent at appeal. There were originally over 60 local objections, but neighbours appear to have warmed to the finished house. This is a worthy addition not only Stan Bolt’s own portfolio, but to that of South Devon’s recent architectural treasure.
