“This house will be seen from everywhere and will be on every postcard of the village so we have to get it right”
Parish Council – March 2019
We were thrilled to be appointed to design and deliver what has turned out to be a remarkable clifftop home.

The client brief, for white box modernism, was the starting point but evolved into a more contextual form that allows the building to step down the site with the terrain and also blends a material pallet of natural stone and Corten Steel influenced by the dominant landscape which it will form part of.

With a new leadership team now in place this is the first step into a bright, ambitious and evolving future for Godfrey Associates.
