The site is a large corner plot known as 'The Saltings' in the North Norfolk village of Thornham. The key feature of the site is the seemingly endless sea views over the salt marshes. With this in mind, the concept was to create an L shaped street frontage and to maximise the sea views by providing the living accommodation at first floor level, an upside down house type was adopted. An attractive street frontage with local character was designed, the car parking and garaging was located at the rear of the site. Materials that would weather well were specified.
