Two contemporary beach houses, with floating foundations, stainless steel frames and Kebony clear cladding have been unveiled at Camber Sands, UK. The material selected for this ambitious project had to be durable and visually complementary to its seaside location.
The architects Walker & Martin wanted to create a seamless continuity in the building’s structure, to echo the natural smoothness of the dunes.The building was designed to have minimum impact on the environment and recycled and sustainable materials were used throughout.
The architects commented: “We have been thoroughly impressed with the quality and durability of the Kebony wood and are absolutely thrilled with the end result. It has been a long (cold and windy) process to get this project to completion and we are very proud of the achievement by all!”
