Treglos at Constantine Bay: The Architectural Vision

March 25, 2021

Overlooking glistening blue waters, Treglos is located within walking distance of the beach at Constantine Bay near Padstow, known as one of the best surfing beaches in Cornwall. The perfect haven to relax and unwind, residents can enjoy glorious sea views, fresh sea air, and coastal walks on their doorstep. In our latest blog, Saint Ives-based architects Poynton Bradbury Wynter Cole give their stunning vision for these truly unique coastal homes. 

“The architectural vision for the project was to design a scheme that sought to build upon and enhance the distinctive place-defining characteristics of Constantine Bay.  These included integrating the site layout into the unique village grain defined by Cornish hedges and rural tracks whilst framing the vistas of local landmarks like Dinas Head and the Quies. We have embraced all opportunities to take in the stunning views of the blue ocean horizons and rural green landscapes of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The site is landscaped into a series of tiers accommodating a selection of single and two-storey detached houses to the lower west end of the site.  Entrances and parking to these are all from the east enabling living rooms and the main bedrooms to have uninterrupted enjoy views of Constantine Bay and the setting sun beyond.  The detached houses have subtle variations in form and materiality sitting over the native duned landscape of Constantine Bay with some blending into it via their native planted green roofs.   

Typical house, Treglos

The apartments which are situated at the top of the site offer commanding views over the Bay from an articulated façade of dormers, balconies and covered garden porticos, each providing a different and unique outlook.  Furthermore, the overall building form is articulated into three distinct volumes via vertical glazed stair cores and stepped laterally across the site hiding much of the building’s mass from the north and south elevations.  Distinct metal roof forms define each roof volume seamlessly combining wall and roof elements to read as carved architectural forms within the undulating landscape.  

 All of the units have views, flowing space and generous openings at the core of the design thinking. This is clearly contemporary architecture but sensitively clad in materials which relate to the area, its geology, heritage and landscape.”
