Very pleased to have secured planning permission for our luxury waterfront apartments scheme based in Dartmouth, Devon…
The building will consist of six apartments on a sloping site of just 340m2. The location, formerly a single story St John’s Ambulance Association site, is a very prominent position on the Dartmouth waterfront.
The proposal will incorporate abstract forms that have been designed to reflect the great tradition of sailing in the area, and to create a dynamic relationship between the building and its setting. This is made evident by a low level plinth accentuating the sail-like aesthetic, allowing the building to appear as if it is floating gracefully above the ground.
The divided ground floor sits well above street level at one end, due to flood risk potential meaning any habitable room should sit above 5.1m AOD. This also gives privacy to the lowest of the apartments in the building; a spacious three bedroom. The first and second floors each consist of one two-bedroom and one three-bedroom apartment. They are both spatially generous with large open plan living areas and private balconies.
The top floor is entirely comprised of a three-bedroom penthouse apartment, which is sympathetically set back from the street to reduce the apparent height of the building.
The large open balconies and glazed openings provide occupants with fantastic views over the estuary and beyond, whilst the long, northern façade has been scaled to match the size and visual rhythm of the street and local vernacular.
