Project Description

Name – Le Rocher Rouge
Client – Private
Location – St. Brelade, Jersey

Le Rocher Rouge is a new four-bedroom house located in Les Ruisseaux Estate, St Brelade, Jersey. The design embeds the house into the hillside with clean, straight lines, which establishes a series of defined horizontal planes within the tiered, natural landscape. A granite base emerges from the surrounding landscape and forms a strong relationship with its context, whilst the natural palette continues in earthy tones of render to the first and second floors. Full-height windows and an extensive cantilever at the second floor provide a sense of lightness and floating of the upper building mass. The zinc cladding on the upper level visually recesses the top floor from the rest of the building.

The house’s internal layout is designed so that the circulation space is at the rear and every occupied room can exploit views of Ouainse Bay whilst protecting neighbouring privacy. Extensive terraces to the South and South East blend interior with exterior and are also orientated towards the views of the bay.
