A patch of waste ground overlooking Polzeath beach from the top of a wooded valley was the ideal spot for a house to take advantage of the views. The 'L' shaped foot print wrapped itself into the plot and a five metre cantilever sailed out over the wooded valley.

A heavily engineered ground floor construction of reinforced concrete anchored the steel beams supporting the cantilevered structure. Made up ground under the tipping point was trenched out and filled out with 40 cubic metres of concrete to find a solid foundation. The steel frame structure of the first floor helped to brace the cantilever and allow plenty of glass facing in the direction of seascapes and country views.

This project was the winner of the Cornish Building Group Award for Design.
