INKSPACE have been heavily involved from the outset in the transformation of an existing house on Devon’s coast, into a brand new contemporary home.

This beautiful coastal retreat was designed by Lauren Kibble whilst at Pell-Stevens Architects. Lauren carefully navigated the complex planning process, to secure planning permission to convert this former 1960’s bungalow, into a modern, statement piece of architecture.

Following planning approval, a local practice, RGP Architects, were appointed to complete the detailed drawings and building regulations.

Construction works commenced on site in January 2017 and have been Project Managed by St. Michaels Properties.

INKSPACE Ltd. were appointed as Design Co-ordinators throughout the onsite build process, to oversee the detailed design stage. Now the external envelope is near completion the project is now really starting to take shape.

Surfer's Retreat
We have worked closely with Lauren throughout our project and have benefited hugely from her creative flair, guidance and expert knowledge. Throughout this process, our ideas have been realised whilst navigating a complex planning process and a difficult build.

The team are highly efficient with regards to overseeing the construction costs and have always been quick to respond to any queries we have had. This has always left us feeling reassured, in the knowledge that our project was in safe hands.

The home that we love has been transformed and updated to make it a truly special place, which reflects our design ambition, personality and active lifestyle. We would always recommend Lauren and Sue to anyone who is looking for a friendly, creative and collaborative design approach to their project.
