Crosshaven

This project involved the design of two detached 4-bedroom houses on an awkwardly shaped and sloping site overlooking the harbour in Crosshaven. To take advantage of the views, general living spaces were to the first floor. The first floor has direct access, via a bridge to a landscaped area to the rear of the houses. Main entry and all bedroom accommodation is at ground floor. As the houses are relatively long and narrow, emphasis was put on roof lighting to maximise natural lighting both to the living spaces at first floor and to the main hallway at ground floor.
