Churston Builders – The Torbay and South Hams Builder. Architect New Build Dwelling in Brixham
Churston Builders completed this compact new build dwelling in Milton Street, Brixham in 2022.
Working with Hank Hendriksen from Hendriksen Chartered Architects & Designers this new build features an interesting mix of traditional and contemporary styles all brought together in an under-utilised space which was previously home to a garage and car parking.
Notable features externally include the juxtaposition of traditional local limestone walls – reflecting the construction of surrounding properties – against the most modern zinc finishes on both roofs and walls. Contemporary anthracite glazing and bi-folding doors are colour matched to to guttering and collectors and even exposed steelwork.
Internally the building reflects the latest practices in both construction and design. Large open plan spaces featuring the highest levels of insulation, highly efficient glazing and underfloor heating provide a stunning living space that is thermally efficient. The extensive glazing provides a good level of natural lighting. An open stairwell lit by a feature window, highlights the bespoke oak staircase which leads to the upper floor suite and bedrooms and bathrooms.
With the property backing onto a street, the property has essentially been reversed so the entrance is now accessed via an area of composite decking. This area maintains a distance and leisure space separate from an area of block paving which provides ample parking for vehicles as well as a utility store/workshop. The boundary to the side road entrance is furnished with a set of bespoke timber gates that can open fully for maximum access.
This property clearly is a masterpiece of space utilisation and vision. This new build property is seamlessly and sympathetically integrated into an area featuring traditional finishes and construction methods whilst offering modern stylish living.
