Les Residences

CLIENT

Private developer

Les Carterets has been carefully designed to continue the ribbon development of domestic properties along Cobo coast road. The architect and client have worked closely with the Planning Department to ensure that the replacement building has been designed to integrate with its surroundings and to offer a high quality building in this unique, picturesque location. The design team recognised early on in the project that Art Deco buildings of the 1930's were constructed extremely successfully in coastal locations throughout Southern England and in the Islands and felt that this approach could be used successfully with this new building. By adopting traditional Art Deco themes within its design, the resultant building provides a high quality development with a high level of attention to detail. The use of curves and glazing as well as the layering of the different levels ensures that the building sits elegantly within the frontage that is Cobo Village. In addition to this, careful use of quality refined materials such as curved glazing, stucco render as well as granite and stone detailing defines the finer detailing of this building. This attention to detail, both internally and externally, has been an extremely important part of the building process and the design team are proud to have been involved in such a unique and challenging project.
