The proposal is for alterations and extension to an existing two story stone dwelling and the formation of a new dwelling on adjacent land at 5 Ellice street in the seaside town of Cellardyke.
The proposed alterations will provide enhanced facilities and living space to the existing dwelling with new glazed doors opening out onto the rear courtyard beyond.
The new 3 bed dwelling replaces old garages which are in a poor state of repair and are designed to create a family home with an open plan ground floor living space including with access out to a private rear courtyard, and 3 bedrooms at first floor level.
On top of the stone wall will sit a rendered volume which takes inspiration from local precedents such as the traditional fishing lofts where dark material sits above paler stone. The long horizontal entrance references the existing horizontally proportioned garage doors, creating a link to the historic use of the site.
A large picture window defines the west elevation at first floor level taking advantage of the views beyond. This threshold is lined in Corten steel, making reference to the ship building history of the seaside location and is tonally sympathetic to the pan tile roofs of surrounding properties
