Location St Ives, Cornwall
Ward Cornwall Council
This award-winning design for a residential development of 74 homes responds to the beautiful context of the seaside town of St Ives in Cornwall.
Saltings Reach builds on the innate beauty of St Ives by reflecting the character of a Cornish Village that has evolved in an organic manner over many decades. Traditionally Cornish architecture has been based around the form of a stone built square house; this traditional form has been re-created in a contemporary manner and the homes incorporate well sized rooms and wide corridors. The role of the car is recognised but its impact is minimised so that cars do not dominate the street scene.
