Sea Gem is a new build house on the sea front at Camber Sands in Sussex.
Replacing an existing run-down bungalow, the brief was to provide a robust, modern and sustainable family home, which maximises and celebrates the proximity to the sea and the stunning views. The result is, we believe, a sustainable and contemporary building that references the best traditions of English seaside modernism.
The house has four bedrooms, a roof top study, a family room and open living, dining and kitchen areas. To take full advantage of the breathtaking views, the plan was orientated towards the south-west, and the main living spaces were set on the first floor. Slim profile windows further enhance visibility and column-free corners allow wrap-around glazing.
