Salcombe Bay

 

Location: Salcombe, East Coast UK   Status: Under construction   Scale: 3-bedroom house + Amphibious outhouse     Constraints: Flood Zone 2&3, Conservation Area

 

Work is on site for a new amphibious house in the seaside town of Salcombe, UK. The innovative scheme, includes the construction of a new flood resistant dwelling within the envelope of an existing stone store building and the replacement of a small boat shed with an elegant amphibious studio as part of the overall complex.

 

The design retains the existing fabric of the garden shop while extending and converting a new first floor with a contemporary pitched roof. The building fabric will be upgraded to resist floodwater using a waterproof concrete inner lining and flood resistant doors and windows. A balcony platform is proposed to the side of the living room at ground level to provide an additional feature to the site and a viewing platform to the river.

 

The boat store is to be rebuilt within the existing footprint and height with a timber framed building set on a bouyant base to enable it to float during extreme high tides.
