Planning permission was received for a timber-framed house to the sea front in Greatstone-on-Sea on the south coast of Kent.

The proposal replaces the existing single storey house and is designed over 4 split levels to provide views over the dunes towards the sea. The house, designed to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes level 3 will be super insulated and will be in part prefabricated to include solar thermal collectors to the south elevation.

South and South East facing balconies provide views and solar shading whilst the adaptability of the design enables an arrangement of 3-5 bedrooms over two levels with 2-tier living accommodation and a mezzanine retreat.
