Paragraph 79 example in Cornwall, Kea House
We are about to share what our project operations manager, Dan describes as ‘THE’ perfect project – an example of a Paragraph 79 project in Cornwall. Read on to find out why!
As a paragraph 79 project, Kea House is aspiring to be a building of exceptional architectural merit – we definitely think it achieves this status. Architects, Squirrel Design have imagined an extraordinary angular design for this residential dwelling, with texture and tones that cleverly complement its surroundings, despite being futuristic in style.
The washed timber boarding at varying 45 degree angles, natural slate roof tiles, anthracite window casements and corrugated panels to break up the timber elections are some of the elements that forge its identity. The detail we liked the most was the dark metal brise soleils which act as ‘eyebrows’ to each window, cleverly allowing light to pass through to create geometric forms as the sun enters through the windows – it’s as if it was planned!
In partnership, landscape architects Redbay Design have designed this unique building to work within its environment, sitting on a Cornish bank, soft vegetation is orchestrated to overlap the boundary between the ground and the building. The result is a perfectly nestled building sitting elegantly in its landscape. This is where James, our newly promoted Landscape Specialist at Archilime, comes in!
