Oceanpoint, Saunton Sands
Situated on the clifftop overlooking Saunton Sands Beach in North Devon, this site was originally occupied by a low yielding hotel. The scheme obtained planning consent for redevelopment to 16 holiday apartments.
Rickett Architects was retained to improve the design and take the scheme through to completion. With the careful selection of materials and some detailing alterations, Rickett Architects was able to sharpen up the design and introduce toughened glass balustrades and bifold doors, to maximise the incredible views across the bay from all of the 16 units.
Working with the London based developer and local construction teams, the practice maintained a proactive role in the construction throughout. The scheme sold off plan and was completed on time and within the original budget.
