ECE has been granted planning permission for the demolition of an existing bungalow and the construction of a new three-storey detached family home in Shoreham-by-Sea.

The site has direct access onto Shoreham beach providing an undisturbed view to the south, as well as great views of the South Downs National Park to the north.

At the north of the site, the single storey brick garage and gym project from the dark timber box topped with a lightweight black zinc roof peaking above the roofline to create a moment of interest. This is all set within flood defence boundary walls to defend against the future flood risks to the south coast.

The materials comprise of a grey concrete facing brick, burnt larch timber and black zinc, all appropriate for the costal location and creating a distinctive property.

The proposal delivers a sustainable and environmentally considerate solution through the use of its materials, solar shading, thermal mass, high levels of thermal insulation, photovoltaic panels and an air source heat pump. It is also designed to reduce energy demand through Passivhaus principles.
