Druim featured in Grand Designs Magazine, October 2019 issue

Our latest built beach house has been featured in the latest Grand Designs Magazine, October 2019 issue. Druim sits within the Rye Nature Reserve, which is a designated SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and is surrounded by a shingle landscape.


The project involved the reconfiguration of an existing detached dwelling. A replacement first floor provides extra sleeping accommodation and improved views towards the sea. The first floor cantilevers over the western elevation, to create a covered entrance canopy below to shelter the entrance from the exposed prevailing winds.


The Ground floor layout opens up on all elevations to the nature reserve and sea views, as well as the shingle ridges to the north.
