THE PALMS HOUSES, PORTELET

Description: 5 No. new-build high quality homes
Completed: 2007
Challenges: The redevelopment of the Bergerac Hotel was split into 3 distinct phases. This project refers to the final phase. 1) Conversion and refurbishment of existing 24 self-catering units to become 1-bed flats. Demolition of Hotel to make way for: 2) 12 1-bed flats over a two storey block and 3) 5 x 4-bed houses and double garages. This exclusive row of 5 houses marks the summit of the picturesque bay of Portelet – they had to be something special. To maximise views, these 3 storey dwellings were conceived as upside down houses, with the master bedroom suite located within the top storey. The spatial theme of a sculpted two-storey high space which was evolved in Phase 2 of this project is re-interpreted in this Phase, as the living area is conceived as a dramatic three-dimensional space. The specification throughout the properties is high and is typified by the walnut spiral stair tower, which is again a feature which is reminiscent of the Phase 2 block of flats. Each of the units has been designed with a specific uniqueness which helps add novelty and rhythm to this ribbon of buildings. The visual playfulness of the roof shapes is appropriate to the maritime setting. The sense of community is increased by the introduction of a gated entrance drive.
