Outspan, Widemouth Bay
Outspan beach houses in Widemouth Bay, Bude were designed by The Bazeley Partnership to reflect a size and scale reminiscent of traditional vernacular dwellings that already existed within the area. We were briefed to create an open plan living style dayroom linked with dining area, maximising the incredible views from the site and utilising solar gain available from the south.
The project was completed in two phases. The first phase of Outspan involved the remodelling of an existing building, sub dividing it into two dwellings.
In the second phase of the development, our architects designed and developed a further five 1.5 storey beach-houses for our client. The exterior of the buildings were formed using mainly white rendered blockwork and powder coated aluminium windows, with a natural slate tile roof.
These beach house properties benefit from air-source heat pumps and other sustainable features. The design was developed through discussion with the planning authority throughout, given the sensitive nature of this highly desirable ocean-facing site.
