Project Description

Name – Sylvania
Client – K&F Properties
Location – St. Lawrence, Jersey

This project, envisaged as a simple, glazed apartment pavilion set against the shoreline, provides seven dwellings with stunning coastal views located directly on the promenade of St. Aubin’s Bay in Jersey. The form is modulated and sub-divided by vertical white rendered walls which slice through the glazing and support large projecting balconies.

The top floor is recessed to minimise its impact from promenade level, and a continuous overhanging roof, clad in copper, provides solar shading and roofline articulation. The rear, roadside elevation is more introverted with a clearly expressed vertical stair and lift core set within a series of render and copper clad planes.

Bespoke enamelled glass panels by architectural glass artist, Martin Donlin add a layer of visual and material quality at the main roadside entrance to the development.
