Roundhouse Architecture was asked to produce a contemporary design for a dwelling house to be used as a holiday home within the confines of the existing site to include the demolition of the existing landmark telephone exchange building.
Various design options were produced for client consideration. It was very important to us prior to moving forward that our vision was aligned with that our clients. Following the design consultation the development of design process took place and included the production of a 3D model allowing us to provide our clients with the type of communication media they needed to visualise the design and finishes, from the still images to the presentation of the project in Virtual Reality.
The two storey building will provide open plan living space and take full advantage of the spectacular views over the north sea coastline.
The building design took on various design complexities including the cantilever structure, specialist glazing and clean lines. Consideration of a basement level storey was designed but later removed by our clients. The added issue of supporting a hot tub on the raised balcony floor set some structural challenges. Each project presents it's own unique challenges and they are the best projects.
Thankfully Roundhouse Architecture prides itself upon having good working relationships with the Clients and our fellow consultants and we were able to work through the complexities of the design plans and gain the necessary apprrovals in order to allow works to commence on site in Jun 2017.
The project is currently in progress and we look forward to updating this page. What can be seen is the beautiful design beginning to show through as the new building begins to takes shape. We look forward to showing you the spacious, luxurious interiors in 2018, when the project is due to complete.
