New House, Greenbank

A new house on the edge of St Just-in-Roseland – one side of the plot faces the village, whilst the other looks out across open fields. The new house was built in an L-shape with a south facing garden sheltered in the crook, where it will receive sun throughout the day. The building is at an angle to follow an existing Cornish hedge boundary, thereby presenting a more formal facade to people entering the village and maximising the size of the garden behind. This orientation has also allowed for solar panels as a source of renewable energy for hot water heating, and some large areas of glazing. The living room is built with an open vaulted ceiling and a large triangular window filling the gable end.

Site inspections were undertaken during the works as part of our role as contract administrators and also for an Architects Certificate, which was required by the client’s mortgage company to provide a guarantee of the quality of the building work.

Status: Building works complete.
