“This was our first new build experience and ARCO2 were brilliant. We enjoyed the process and are so delighted with the end result.“
No.5 Gwithian Towans started as a 1950s blockwork bungalow, wasteful of energy and in need of protection from the wind driven rain. ARCO2 created a replacement still-modest home that fits the environmentally sensitive area but maintains fine details and comfortable occupant privacy.
The house sits adjacent to an area of outstanding natural beauty, which created a challenge as all new buildings on The Towans are scrutinised against a detailed and stringent Design Guide. ARCO2 took this in their stride and created a nature-friendly home just as beautiful.
