Contemporary Home, Bude
A contemporary home designed by The Bazeley Partnership for our clients in Bude. This stunning property features south-facing balconies, maximising the views across the countryside, whilst also creating a blend of outdoor and indoor rooms. The spacious and light interior incorporates a central staircase with floating stairs and glazed balustrades.
Our original brief from our client was to remodel and extend an existing home, but following an in depth structural assessment of the property it became clear that the property was structurally unsound and needed to be demolished and completely rebuilt. This gave the clients the opportunity to design, with us, their dream home.
Sustainability was a key aspect of the design and construction, with underfloor heating, solar panels and other energy efficient technologies being incorporated into the design. The clients also selected local contractors and sourced locally produced materials where possible.
The living accommodation is on the first floor with balconies extending across the rear of the property, accessed via bi-fold doors, so that the owners could make the most of the beautiful countryside views. The interior is open plan with revealed wood beams and a wood burner to add traditional touches to the contemporary design.

Martin Back of The Bazeley Partnership impressed us with his calm creative approach, and was keen to maximise views from the site by creating an open-plan living space on the first floor incorporating south-facing balconies.We would never have taken on a self build project by choice, but it’s actually been liberating to build something completely from scratch, and the end result is so much better than we could have achieved by simply adapting the old house.
