Grand Designs Magazine feature VESP architects’ new house on the Devon coast

The August edition of Grand Designs Magazine features our new build house on the cliff tops of South Devon. Labrador Bay House is a contemporary new home nestled into the clifftops above the Shaldon coastline in South Devon. The clients approached us with the brief to replace a large existing dwelling with a new home that connects with the landscape, both in the immediate sense with the gardens, but also with the views of the sea and surrounding wooded valley. Whilst the replacement dwelling is sizeable at 550sqm, the clients did not wish the house to appear as a large single mass. The brief was to design a house that blended with its surroundings, had a more articulated massing, and did not impose itself but rather respected the site topography.

We’re delighted that this special home has been selected to be featured in Grand Designs Magazine; a testament to the hard work of the design team, the clients, and the construction team. For more information and photographs please visit the project page.
