“This was no ordinary project but something very very special. The result is a house which exceeded our expectations in every sense.“
Mr & Mrs Wright

Project

The original house at Edge O’ Cliff was a 3 bedroom wooden chalet built in the 1920’s. Perched on the coastal slopes with a small coastal path as the only access. ARCO2 took on this tough challenge and used innovation, determination and passion to create the residence you see today.
