Beach Hut

A new house on the edge of Mevagissey Conservation Area. It is bounded on one side by a stream and the site is situated within the Environment Agency’s flood risk zone and subject to flooding. To overcome objections from the Environment Agency the house is built on stilts, raising the floor level 0.6m above the predicted flood water level. Timber decking at the same level provides a dry access and outdoor space around the building safe from flood water.

The building was also designed to comply with the Lifetime Homes standards and The Code for Sustainable Homes level 3. To help reach this target we designed the building with renewable energy features such as solar panels for water heating and rainwater recycling to reduce its environmental impact.

Status: building works complete.
