Framed by picturesque sandstone cliffs, the Atlantic View Lodges sit upon a sloping landscape on the Cornish coastline. The six luxury holiday cottages positioned in Widemouth Bay, Bude, were designed to blend seamlessly into the surrounding landscape in order to uphold the natural beauty of the lodges’ setting. The Bazeley Partnership selected Kebony to clad the exterior of the holiday cottages due to its enhanced durability, sustainable qualities and unique aesthetic. The use of innovative materials, such as Kebony, was undoubtedly a key contributing factor for the project’s success in the Michelmores Property Awards, winning Sustainable Project of the Year following its completion.
Mark Roberts on behalf of The Bazeley Partnership commented: “The plan was to re-establish the sense of a rural, wild heathland landscape, enhancing the habitat and biodiversity within the site, replacing the existing building with a standard of architecture that is more sensitive and positive in its contribution to the surrounding context. The high quality, modern accommodation enhances the location, attracting further investment and revenue to the area.”
