New Build


Finn Erschen Architekt

39A Belsize Lane , London , NW3 5AA , United Kingdom

A residential apartment block set on a sloping yet elevated cliff top site overlooking Carlyon Bay. Located among houses of varying styles in a private road setting form the backdrop for this prefabricated timber framed construction. Eight flats arranged over three floors face due south and benefit from a fantastic far-reaching sea view. Loggias regulate the solar thermal gains and balconies further beak up the buildings overall mass. A pitched roof provides light into the core of the two penthouse flats as well as providing the optimum place for the solar thermal panels used for heating water. The external facades are sympathetically clad in regional horizontal mounting sweet chestnut boards.
