It's hard to believe that this sustainable timber-wrapped property was once a crumbling 3-bedroom house that failed to maximise its enviable coastal views. But thanks to the creative minds at Coffey Architects, this once-dilapidated home was given the new lease of life it yearned for. 

With clever use of timber-cladding and sustainable building practises, the house has undergone a radical transformation from a lacklustre house into a vibrant contemporary home.
