The new house is situated in a small village near to Cowes on the Isle of Wight, on a small cul-de-sac overlooking the Solent. It is part of a small collection of timber framed houses which run along Shore Road and its re-development has catalysed a much needed regeneration of the area, with many of the surrounding properties in the process of being updated. The clients requested a weekend house close to the coast, with spacious and sociable communal areas and private external spaces, in order to enjoy the views over the Solent.
