Beach Cottage, Restoration & Extension
C K A Architectural Consultants LTD
This “Cottage Extension” was undertaken in phases scheduled over a number of years and has involved the complete restoration of a beach front residence for long standing Vulcan Ellis Clients. Works have included the replacement of the external cladding, formation of a new balcony structure and extension of the living accommodation to previously unused areas of the existing building envelope and extensive refinishing of the interior.
This last scheme involved the design and construction of a large contemporary open space sun room at the rear of the house situated directly on the beach at Normans Bay.
A large proportion of the works involved the initial ground works which consisted of the construction of Structural raft footings which had to be formed in “running beach” to meet the Environment Agency’s criteria. The result is a stunning new living space with stunning views out to sea and along the coast.
