Designed by Director, Trevor Pullen, this new build beach house progresses on site at Felpham, West Sussex. The house is located on a private beach estate with direct beach access and stunning sea views.
This image, looking towards the southern elevation, shows the complex gambrel roof structure under construction. The roof will be finished in a mixture of natural grey slates and matching photovoltaic panels which will blend seamlessly with the slate roof.
The house is of traditional construction using a palette of high quality materials whilst incorporating many latest technologies including a house automation system.
The swimming pool and house will be heated by a ground source heat pump, which harnesses the naturally occurring heat stored in the ground via eight 127 metre deep bore-holes. The heat pump then increases the temperature, and this heat is used to provide home heating and hot water.
The photovoltaic roof slates will convert the natural sunlight into electricity, and at times of no demand this electricity will be stored in Moixa smart batteries for use when required.
Needless to say the builders are enjoying working in what is considered to be the sunniest location of the UK.
Pullen & Wells Architects are once again working with Nicholls Countryside Construction to build this new home which is expected to be finished later this year.
