Housing and Urban Design
Education and Community
We were asked by Cornish house builder Molwin Homes to prepare a detailed masterplan for a site on the seafront at Wherrytown, between Penzance and Newlyn.
The site’s extraordinary sea views and favourable orientation were the generator of our design. We were able to significantly increase the site’s frontage by introducing two main linear courtyards that run perpendicular to the main promenade. A central green ‘walk’ opens up the rear of the site to sea views and provided a safe play area for children.
