A contemporary house in a prime beach-side location currently under construction. It is being built as a family home for a private client and is on target for a build cost of £1,500 per m². Construction is of load-bearing masonry, with in-situ cast concrete floors through all storeys, with under-floor heating throughout. It should achieve a thermal performance that fully meets the Building Regulations without the need for any solar panels, and will have a substantial thermal mass giving stable internal temperatures and comfortable living conditions. Extensive glazing and generous balconies are to frame open views of the sun setting over the sea.
