New house, St Peter, Jersey

New house, St Peter, Jersey

The design for a new two-storey house in the parish of St. Peter is inspired by houses built in Jersey in the 18th and 19th Century. The dwelling is traditional in form and appearance, with a pitched roof, and replaces the site of an existing builder's yard in a small residential enclave in St Peter. An L-shaped wing provides a single storey garage with accommodation space in the roof, creating a typical arrangement with a visually subservient service wing. Sustainable and traditional materials have been used throughout in alignment with Jersey's design standards. The simple palette of materials complements the relative simplicity of the design. The roof is made of natural slate with lead rolls, contrasting the rendered chimneys with stone capping. The walls are lime stucco with stone dressings and plinth. The portico is stone.
