The design of 6 New Homes, Rhosneigr, to maximise sea views and sit comfortably in context.
Local stone, cedar cladding and white render clad these fantastic properties. Each house has a vaulted living space with amazing views. The density of development was carefully considered to allow enough space for access and amenity, whilst respecting local residents.
We began by carrying out a thorough site analysis to identify opportunities and constraints for the development. Neighbours were consulted and several concept-stage options were designed to allow for lots of ideas to be explored and considered.
3D modelling was used to construct the site and surrounding buildings, helping the design process. Once the concept designs were agreed the 3D models were updated to produce drawings for a full planning application. After planning approval a full technical design package was started to deliver drawings for Building Control, Tender & Construction.
A similar palette of materials was used as those on surrounding buildings and a strong design theme was created across the site, to place-make: The Lookout Point, Rhosneigr.

‘Buju Architects produced several visualisation models which proved extremely helpful in view of the gradient and context of this development… with a difficult site such as this 3D design can be vital in obtaining the correct interaction between buildings.’
