Sea Breeze has gained planning permission. The new dwelling is located on Camber Sands beach in East Sussex, directly backing on to the sand dunes behind and with outstanding views across the beach and English Channel. The site is unique in that it is one of only a handful of properties in the region which are only accessed by driving along the beach. The dunes behind the property are a unique landscape feature and are designated as a SSSI. The designs are focused on creating a robust building to cope with the extreme weather conditions, with high winds, moving sand and salt air. The building will be externally finished in trowelled concrete with a pink pigment, to create a sealed envelope.
The plans include a wellness spa with a steam pod, sauna and a plunge pool, along with open plan living accommodation with large expanses of glazing looking across the beach. There are 3 double bedrooms at first floor level with two en suite rooms and a family bathroom. The external landscaping has been designed in a curving corten, to appear sculptural yet also retain the sand and dunes surrounding the building and protect the decked terrace areas. Site works are due to begin in Spring 2019.
